I use then proc import to import a SPSS-dataset. It work fine besides that I get this Error when I try to use the dataset:
ERROR: Width specified for format F is invalid
No errors when I used the proc import.
I don't really know about imported SPSS data, but I think you can try to change the formats on your imported table by using PROC DATASETS. For numeric columns try the BEST. format, and for char try the $CHAR. format.
