I try to import a SPSS sav file from PSPP into the R's RKWARD but get an error message. As I don't know whether this is a SPSS/PSPP or  a R question I first post here. The error message reads:
Warning in read.spss("C:{file name}.sav",  :
("C:{file name}.sav" : Unrecognized record type 7, subtype 18 encountered in system file
I have no clue what a SPSS record type 7 nor its subtypes might be but maybe someone here ?

And if we know what the error message means how to answer it ?



It's an R error, but if you ask them, they'll tell you that lots of people have this trouble:

The first link suggests a solution, the second link tells you to ignore the warning.  I get the impression that the PSPP code used in the R foreign package has not been updated in many, many years.
