AFAIK, no Excel format is a supported format (but PSPP is open-source,
so feel free to write that missing functionality and contribute it to
I suggest that you save the excel file as a Tab-delimited, CSV or ODS
file and try importing that. ODS would be the closest to the Excel formats.
Maybe you also found a bug: I just tried saving a small Excel file using
Office 2010 as "OpenDocument Spreadsheet format" and importing into GNU
pspp 0.10.4-g50f7b7 and I do see that there is a mostly blank screen at
the end of the import wizard. But I clicked "apply" and it imported OK.
If you think you might be seeing a bug (e.g., if by "import Excel data"
you do mean something like tab-delimited or CSV) then please be more
specific about the steps required to replicate the bug. Also include a
short dataset (or information that is OK to make public) that triggers
the bug, ideally as a plan ASCII (tab-delimited or CSV).
Im using GNU pspp 1.0.1-g818227 on Windows 10 64-bit.
When I try to import Excel data, the import screens do not preview the
data so I cant select which lines to import, which is the first line,
which are the separators, etc. The large panel is entirely blank. Any
