I just bought SPSS for my macbook and I can't make it find my syntax file. Why?

says I have to edit the file handle and tell it where the file is on my computer. I have followed these directions exactly, but it simply tells me "File not found"*:
file handle pcdat/name='statdoc.dat' /lrecl=20.
data list file="C:\Macintosh HD\Users\dgaicun\Desktop\statdoc\statdoc.dat"/.
Really, that's as far as my troubleshooting can go. That's what I was supposed to write and it doesn't work.
* More specifically:
>Error # 31 in column 16. Text: C:\Macintosh HD\Users\dgaicun\Desktop\statdoc\statdoc.dat
>File not found.
>Execution of this command stops.
