There are several ways, but I think the easiest is to "Save As" your excel 
into CSV format. Then in PSPPIRE, use File|Import Data  to read the .csv file.
If you use Gnumeric, LibreOffice or Openoffice instead of Excel for your 
spreadsheets, then the intermediate .csv step will not be necessary.
     I am trying to learn how to use the program in order to analyze data for a 
     proposed book project on the history of free African-Americans in 
     North Carolina before the American Civil War.  I've  done a lot of 
     from census records, court records, land and tax records, etc. but want to 
     be able to fully analyze the data.

I wish you every success in this project.

Do NOT post these threats and misinformation to this list!!  I believe 
somebody has asked you that on a previous occasion.  African-Americans have been
emancipated.  GNU works to emancipate software and the right to use and copy it.
These kind of "confidentiality" statements do not help.

Thank you.
