Question:

I’m having problems inputting data from SPSS 21 into Rumm2030. It works fine with SPSS 20 but is a mess when I input data from 21?

            Action:

            Explanation:

From SPSS21 onwards, the Unicode encoding type is the default setting.

The symbols in line 1 of the Unicode encoding type are known as byte order marks.  This change began with Version 21 and the solution to obtaining the Fixed ASCII format is to specify “Local Encoding”.
