Subject: Import SAS Files to SPSS 15.0 with value labels
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"
Dear list members,
Has anyone successfully imported SAS Files in SPSS including value labels?
When getting SAS DATA FILES (.sas7bdat) in SPSS without the formats
subcommand - no value labels appear. This is well known and also described
in the archive of our list. Unfortunately I could neither find in the list's
archive nor in the SPSS Help Menu a way how to import the SAS formats files,
so that value labels are attributed. It never worked.
The SPSS Help Menu states: "For SAS transport files, the FORMATS subcommand
is ignored". Is the SAS file I am using (.sas7bdat) a SAS transport file?
Many thanks for your help.
