Do not use SPSS myself but maybe the slash "/" is the problem. Try replacing it by a backslash "\" in the syntax file.

After browsing to the file location, right-click in the address bar and select "Copy address as text". Then paste that address, followed by a backslash, in front of the filename in the SPSS syntax file.
