Those who plan on doing more involved research projects using SPSS should follow up this brief intro with more in-depth training.
Also when importing data from Excel some values derived from formula are not read in. How can I fix this?
Resolving the problem SPSS data files. SAV contain only data and meta-data that describes the data format, labels, value lable,s missing values, etc. Excel spreadsheets however can contain non-data entries, such as formulas.

The effect of this is that if the inputs to the formula change the displayed value changes. If you need to import an Excel file that uses many formula as a work around you can copy the entire datasheet to a new sheet using the Paste Special command and selecting to paste Values.
This will result in the new datasheet only containing the results of the formula, not the formula themselves which will allow SPSS to read in the entire set of data Related information.I am not exactly sure, but I think the main reason is because SPSS will not overwrite the sheet, but replace the sheet with another one.
Than, within Excel, although you might refer to "Sheet1" in your formula, it seems internally, it will give another reference name. CHAPTER 7 z-Testfor a Mean V.
