Can you construct a tiny example CSV file with three cases of dummy data that illustrates the problem? Can you also share the version of PSPP, platform, etc. that you are using? How are you accessing the file? And what exactly did PSPP do when it encountered the error?

Does LibreOffice Calc or Excel also have trouble with this file?

I usually end up manually fixing such issues because it's hard to automate a way to fix the RC's you don't want while not "fixing" the CR's that actually terminate a record.

I'm a newbie on PSPP.
Today I tryed to import a CVS but got a problem when the parser encountered a <CR> inside double quotes.
I cannot link the file since contain reserved data.
Any Help?
Thank You
