Can't open data set

I tried to open a .sav data-set, which was originally set up on a PC, on my apple computer. The error message raads: "Cannot find charactor set cp1252"

No idea how to get around that?!

    Hi Mirjam,

    This looks like an issue for our GitHub page. I'll create the issue for you.

    HI Mirjam,
    Can you send me a SPSS file where this error occur? You can send it directly to b.boutin@uva.nl

  • Hi Mirjam,

    One more time a request if it is possible to send us an example SPSS where this problem occurs.
    We made a fix for this issue (see https://github.com/jasp-stats/jasp-desktop/issues/2396)
    and we like to test if this code change fixes the problem.
    Please, if possible, send the attachment to f.a.m.meerhoff@uva.nl (or b.boutin@uva.nl)

    Best regards
    Frans Meerhoff
