Help needed with SPSS!

#1
I have a datafile with 160 respondents. All respondents have 15x a rating and 15x a match or a mismatch. So rating 1 is linked to match/mismatch 1, rating 2 linked to match/mismatch 2 etc. First question: how do I actually link those variables in SPSS?

Second question: Now I want to know what’s the difference in rating between those who have matches en those who have mismatches. I think about doing an independent T-test, but that means I should do a T-test 15 times. Is there an analysis where I can compare 15 ratings and 15 match or mismatches from all my 160 respondents?

It might depend on what you mean by "link".

Hi! I don’t know if linking the variables is necessary for the analysis. I thought maybe it’s useful to link them; so instead of 30 variables per person (matchmismatch1, matchmismatch2, matchmismatch3 until matchmismatch15 and rating1, rating2, rating3 until rating15) I link the matchmismatches with the ratings and then have 15 variables?

But most important question in my second question above
