That sounds frustrating.  PSPP should fix this issue, but my advice is to use another program for entering the data and then to read it into PSPP.  I would use a spreadsheet and then save the data as tab-delimited and read it into PSPP.

We are having issues with the PSPP software.
To cut a long story short the problem that we witness is the program freezing when we try to save the data that has been entered. When the program reboots the data is lost and we must re-enter it.
Is there anything that we could try to prevent this as almost a 1/3 of data entered has had to be re-entered and it can be very frustrating at times. As you can image it’s not very productive in it’s current format.
Any help or advice with regards to this matter would be extremely helpful.
Kind regards and best wishes
