Subject: Is "sysfile info"-->data file possible?
We've been sent what looks like a SPSS-PC output file (suffix .se2?)
which appears to be the output of a command like
"sysfile info filename"
The contents look like the output of a "display dictionary" command ie a
list of variable names with format value labels for each variable.
Is there some way given this file alone to construct a data file with
these variable names, formats etc. We're using SPSS-Windows here. Many
