Dear all,

I have tried to import a SPSS file in R, but always get the following message:
--- cut here ---

Error in read.spss("spss-data.sav", :
  error reading system-file header
In addition: Warning message:
In read.spss("spss-data.sav", :
  spss-data.sav: Variable Y6B_A indicates variable label of invalid length 256
--- cut here ---

SPSS (ver 14) has no problems with this file.

Any ideas?

Kind regards,
