I have a few questions regarding SPSS free-trial. IBM's phone is not open on weekends and I need to finish up my research by tonight so I'm really freaking out.
I recently downloaded the SPSS free-trial, which expired today. I can't find the actual data that I saved anymore (I only have the output). If I purchase a new version, will it provide me with my actual dataset again, or can I assume that I lost it permanently?!
Also, I don't really understand which version to purchase. There seems to be ton of different kinds online. IBM sells the product for several thousand dollars, but it seems I can buy different versions online for $60-70. I'm currently an undergrad whose not doing overly-complex analysis, so any suggestions on which version to buy would be appreciated.
Also, once I buy a new version, will it erase any of the previous SPSS files I have saved (output, etc.)?
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED! THANKS!!!
