Hi,
I downloaded a spss sav file from the official site of the European
Social Survey and was not able to open it, getting the following error
message:
C:/... /ESS1-7e01.sav: Number of elements per case (0) is not between 1
and 134217727.
The same message appeared in RKWard when using the R app foreign. But
JASP opened it without difficulties. So the file can be read.

Any ideas how to open it in PSPP?
TIA

I would be pleased to help fix this problem with PSPP. Are you able to send
a copy of the file that causes the problem? You can send it privately to
me, if necessary, and I will not share it further.

Hello Be,

Thank for offering your help. The original file is a cumulated
multi-wave multi-country survey from the European Social Survey. It was
so large (200 MB) that I downloaded a reduced version of 8.8 MB which -
alas - creates the same error in PSPP:

GET

GET FILE="C:\Users\Toshiba\Downloads\ESS1-7e01 France.sav".

erreur: 'C:\Users\Toshiba\Downloads\ESS1-7e01 France.sav' prÚs du
segment 0xe188 :Le nombre de lignes de ce document (0) doit être
supérieur à 0 et inférieur à 26843545.

Here is the sav file in question: https://we.tl/gigL21PtBp

In RStudio which imports sav files the file was loaded without difficulties.

In RKward which imports sav files the same file produced the following
error message :

Warning in read.spss("C:/Users/Toshiba/Downloads/ESS1-7e01 France.sav", :
C:/Users/Toshiba/Downloads/ESS1-7e01 France.sav: Number of elements per case (0) is not between 1 and 134217727
Error in read.spss("C:/Users/Toshiba/Downloads/ESS1-7e01 France.sav", :
error reading system-file header


Thanks,

Thank you, too. I understand that you think the problem is more on the
side of PSPP and not caused by the ESS website generating files with
errors .

Thank you. I should be able to find and fix the problem later this week.

It could be either, but I want PSPP to accept all of the files that other
software does, so I will adjust to make the file work regardless of the
fault.
