Hi folks, During the next weeks I will have to do cope with BIG column binary formatted (CBF) data sets. As I understand the scheme, CBF saves disk space so much that there can't be explicit var names or labels expected. They do have to get added later, I guess?! I would like to know how that kind of stuff does LOOK like. Viewed from an other perspective: These data are said to be in SPSS data set. So, are they still in CBF, or already transformed into SPSS? Just let me know. Cheers! Chris
