    I read in horror that SPSS cannot test multivariate normality (Field, A. Discovering Statistics using SPSS, 3rd edition, p 603)…. I have been using regression to calculate Mahalanobis distances in order to compare these against critical values…and to determine outliers…. is this a reputable solution?

    Please help!  Thanks
