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 FILE="C:\Users\Toshiba\Downloads\ESS1-7e01 France.sav".
erreur: 'C:\Users\Toshiba\Downloads\ESS1-7e01 France.sav' prÃšs du
segment 0xe188 :Le nombre de lignes de ce document (0) doit Ãªtre
supÃ©rieur Ã 0 et infÃ©rieur Ã 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", :

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.
I downloaded a spss sav file from the official site of the
European Social Survey and was not able to open it, getting the
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?
