Dear Ms Kahf,

great that I could help you. I would use short nouns, maybe abbreviated, to describe the item content. For example, instead of using "Wahrscheinlichkeit_es_zu_kaufenA": "KaufwahrschA". Instead of, for example: "Eignung_Moebelbau": "EignMoeb" . The variable name need not to describe completely the item content, but should remind you and other users of the data file what is represented by the variable. You can describe the variable in more detail by the variable label.

Good night.

Dear Dr. Oliver Walter

thank you very very much. It really solved my problem, i can open the file again.
I will not to use „Umlaute“ again in pspp, new lecture for me :)
As i mentioned its my first time working with PSPP so how would you recommend to choose the names of the variables so it would be optimal for data management?

Greetings from Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg,

Dear Ms Kahf,

PSPP does not seem to like variable names which include German umlauts (Umlaute) such as ä, ö or ü. I tried to fix your data file and seem to be successful. I send it to you attached to this e-mail. Please check it.

BTW: Your choice of variable names is not optimal for data management apart from using German umlauts either.

Good luck.

Kind regards from Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein,
