My first guess is that the file path of the file survey_41972_SPSS_data_file.dat has not been correctly defined. For instance, if the file is in c:\temp, you should put "c:\temp\" in front of the file name by editing their syntax file.Mari87 wrote: >Error. Command name: GET DATA

This is likely because the original online questionnaire used a wrong type of question format. In your scenario, the questionnaire designer should have used radio button type of response, where user can only pick one answer. Instead, he/she used a multiple response format, which will return one yes/no (representing checked/unchecked) for each single option.Mari87 wrote:Hi Penguin_Knight!
I thought I already tried to put the exact location in front, but now it works fine, thanks a lot!
But I have a second problem. This is about the variable view:
Normaly every question is a variable with a couple of values
Question 1: How are you A=Good B=Bad C=Not Good, Not Bad
Variable 1 is question 1
Values A=1 B=2 C=3
In my case I have only variables and no values! So:
Question 1A = variable 1
Question 1B = variable 2
Question 1C = Variable 3
So I can only see 1's and 0's in my data view.
Do you also have an idea how I can solve this second problem? I hope so
