Q:  

I am having trouble with SPSS. The program is not recognizing my *.sav file.

A:  

Your syntax has two problems:

     GET FILE='test.sav'

SPSS expects a period at the end of the command, so at the very least you need to say:

     GET FILE='test.sav' .

You should also reference the data with a complete path:

      W:\fakeuser\work\projectx\test.sav'
