AW: Problems with data import from

Well, my problem is that I could not install SPSS as I only have a Windows 7 
starter version and this seems to be incompatible with the test version of 
SPSS. So, I only have PSPP :-(

I had the same problem (the error message when trying to import .csv files) 
with 0.8.2 & 0.8.3.

Rather than deal with the trouble with figuring it out (I am no programmer), I 
just imported the .sav file from SPSS and had no further issues.

It would, however, be great if we could work together to find a fix.
