Re: [Rd] re ading SPSS .sav files (PR#13509)

Installed in my computer is the Version 2.9.1(2009-06-26) of R. I have a SPSS.sav file produced by SPSS Version 17.    



<- read.spss("f:/sme.sav",use.value.labels=FALSE)

Warning message:

In read.spss("f:/sme.sav", use.value.labels = FALSE) :

  f:/sme.sav: Unrecognized record type 7, subtype 18 encountered in system file  

I have tried so may times running some conditions I think may have caused these errors to recur(including re-installing the R).  

I am at my wit's end on how to make the read.spss work. Please help!
