Good morning. I am trying to import csv data through psppire. The data file as a 'header' line with preferred variable names. psppire identifies the header line as line 0 and asks where the data starts. psppire correctly identifies the format of the body of data elements. If line 0 is chosen as the start psppire reports data error on the header line. If line 1 is chosen as the data start psppire proceeds. However in neither case does psppire recognize the header line as the variable identifier line. psppire proceeds to name the variables as var001, var002, ... Is there a way to either modify the input file replace the variable names automatically. The objective is to use the first line as the source of the variable names.

Thanks in advance for your help, Dan
