There are two ways to export data to SPSS:

1) In the 'DATA' - 'Export' - 'SPSS SAV' tab, click on the "SPSS SAV export" button. An SPSS database will be generated automatically.

2) If you encounter any problems, use the syntax export option, which is available in the 'DATA' - 'Export' - 'SPSS SYNTAX' tab. In this case, you should follow the five steps  described in that tab.

  • As 1KA does not use the SPSS API, minor corrections to the syntax are necessary. Some older versions of SPSS may have problems, so we recommend to check the FAQ 'I have problems exporting to SPSS' to solve them.

As with other exports, you can filter the data in the top right corner according to variables, statuses, conditions or time period. You can also enable the export of paradata, identifiers, and system variables

In the top right corner, you can also find the settings, where you can further specify whether you want to export only system data, only data or data and paradata. When you select "Export only system data", only the system data (identifiers) of the respondents will be exported, without any other data. However, if you choose not to export the system data, you can then export the individual paradata of the respondent.

The functionality is available for users of the 2KA and 3KA packages for individuals, and for users of the business packages for groups.
