AFAIK, you shouldn't need to do anything special for the Excel DAC to work. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling SPSS? If that doesn't work, then either try using the Database Wizard approach to read the Excel file or save the Excel file as as tab-delimited or CSV text file and use the Text Wizard to read the text data file.

OK, thanks all...

Here is some more data on my problem.

I use SPSS 12 and Excel 2003. I have tried OPN DATA .EXL but something is wrong and it says that Excel DAX mode is not working. I have tried to copy all values from excel to spss but it seems that somewher along the file data gets mixed. And I am sure it is not in excel since I have checked it many times. What I do get in SPSS is ok until it reaches certain case and then the whole file, the variables, is moved to the right by one variable. I have find the specific case in excel and I can not find any strange characters in it. I have removed all the special characters we use in Bosnia so there are only english alphabet characters left.

Hope this puts some light on the problem. I think the problem is in Excel since COPY PASTE always worked before so maybe this is not a appropriate forum I am supposed to bother with this question but there may be someone who had similiar problem.

Anyway thanks.
