Hi Holger,

You should give a more precise description of the LimeSurvey data file so that we can help you.

Which is the format of the LimeSurvey date file  ?
In PSPP the data file that you get when you save is a .sav format like any other SPSS data file. As far as I know SPSS maintained the sav format since longtime. So, where do you get the info that the SPSS file is a SPSS 16 version ?

What do you see when you open the data file in Notepad to read the file header ?

I've conducted an online survey (~2.800 participants) using LimeSurvey. I'd
like to use PSPP to analyze the resulting data - as I've done before.

However, I can't seem to manage to convert the LimeSurvey export files (SPSS
16+ format), into a functioning .spv file. But strangely enough, I don't get
any error messages when I execute the syntax file (.sps), the output file
looks fine to my eyes - but the data set window of pspp appears empty. So,
no error messages, but no data either - and no .spv file I could save.
PSPP has no support for reading or writing .spv files.
