Hi everyone,
I'm trying to import .sps (SPSS portable file) file. the read.spss function (library foreign) doesn't allow to import such files. should I import in spss and then save as sav file? there is not other solutions available?
what I mostly like from spss file is that they have variable labels. want is really wish to keep are the variable.labels from the spss file; so, if there is a different way to bring them from the sps file will be also ok (I also have a csv copy but without the variable.labels obviously). thanks for any answer..
