Converting data into SPSS

I downloaded the SPSS label format and follow all procedures on how to insert data into SPSS, the thing is some of data are missing, variables with multiple choice they are not arranged properly, but online form the format is good i can see all questions and answers though on calculation it doesn’t give 100% it gives less which is not a deal, for now what i want is EXPORTING all my data into SPSS .sav file.

Hi @wibonela,

Welcome to the community! Have you gone through our support article Converting Data into SPSS and/or Stata. It should solve your issue.

If you still have issues, kindly please let us know.

Have a great day!

Halo Kal
Yes i went through all procedures and i even watch YouTube videos and i follow all steps but in the end some data are missing can’t see them especially rating data and multiple choice i wish there could be a way to just convert into .sav file directly

Hi @wibonela,

Which version of the download did you use while converting to SPSS?

Have a great day!

SPSS labels let me attach the screenshot

Hi @wibonela,

This is just a label that you are downloading it from the KoBoToolbox server. Could you also show us the dataset (i.e. the format in xls or xls (legacy) etc.) that you download to user it with this label.

Have a great day!

Dear @Kal_Lam

The screenshot shows all data type that i downloaded from the server.

As you can see i tried, xlsx and xlsx(legacy), CSV, SPSS only xlsx (legacy) shows some more data but rating data are not included, if i can share with you the data set privately?.

Hi @wibonela,

Could you share with me the following (through a private message) as outlined here so that i could have a closer look at your issue:

  • Username
  • Server (OCHA or HHI)
  • Project name

Have a great day!

Hi !!
I had issues with inserting SPSS label. From the instruction in “converting data into SPSS …”, it says “Now open the syntax you downloaded on step 2 and run the syntax.” And after running it, it says “errors…” Would that be ok if you can send me a tutorial video on how to insert SPSS label? That would be very helpful.

Hi @Chanleap,

Welcome to the community! Have you installed SPSS in your PC? If not, you may get an error message.

Have a great day!

Hi Kal!
Thanks for your prompt response.

I have. And I was about to open the CSV data in SPSS but not able to insert the labels.

Hi @Chanleap,

Could you kindly share (if you feel like the same should be treated confidentially please share it through a private message) with me the csv data and the spss label syntax file. Would like to have a look at it.

Have a great day!

Let me ask my research lead first as the report has not been published. Will send them through when I get an approval. Thanks for your support

Hi @Kal_Lam!

It is confidential, so I can not share sorry. Would there be another way to address this issue?
