I've identified an issue in exporting to excel or access. I very often
restructure data from cases to variables. This results in variables such
as var.1, var.2 etc. The '.' doesn't work for excel or access because
it has a special meaning for them. Unless I'm missing something it would
seem that SPSS/PAWS should include an option in restructuring, or
perhaps a default, to use the '_' underscore instead of the '.'.
