Thank you all very much for your help and advice! Unfortunately, I was unable
to find any files with a .jnl ending using my search option. I also searched
for log and journal. I have SPSS 14.0- do you know if there is another name it
might be under?
Also is the journal in a format that can be opened by a windows program like
notepad? And will it have the code in a format that is similar to syntax? Have
any of you used it to retrieve recodings before?
