To be honest, I'd rather not share the data file at this point. It doesn't contain any secrets, but the data still belongs to my employer and has not been made public.

Fwiw I tried to upload a screenshot of the PSPP output in the forum but encountered a number of server errors - that's why I ended up posting five times, sorry for that.

Also, I've attached the syntax file. Maybe this helps?

Thank you,

directory, but when I run the .sps I only get a long list of error messages
(bad character, expecting command name, unknown command, expecting integer).
It is difficult to guess the problem without any specifics.  Can you
provide a sample .dat and .sps so that we can try it out for ourselves?
