I think what Michel meant was for you to post the comma seperated file,
(containing fake data f necessary) rather than the .xls file.  Not everyone
uses Windows so it's best to avoid those formats if you can.

Anyway I took your .xls file and converted it to .csv using
and then imported it into psppire using the "File->Import Delimited Text Data"
menuitem.  It seemed to work fine for me.  The only problem was that one cell
in your file contains "xy" instead of a number.  Pspp correctly flags a warning
about this and inserts a "system missing" value for that cell.

Below, is the syntax which Psppire generates for me.  You might find it useful.

     Thanks, Michel.
     Data entry is not yet finished.  Due to privicy concern, it is not
     appropriate for me to email it out.  Your advice about the procedures
     to convert the spreadsheet would be good enough and much appreciated.
