How to use

You need to import your .sav file into DSS and then choose the SPSS format, as shown in the picture above.

Implementation choices:

  • Date values are deliberately not kept in their original SPSS date display format, but instead converted to the more practical and less ambiguous ISO 8601 format (yyyy-mm-dd).
  • String values will have their leading and trailing whitespace removed.
