I have exported the data into spss. I have also selected event date as a part of field to be exported. But when I run spss syntax generated after the export, the column of the filed eventdate has all blank dates. If I open the exported .dat file in the word pad, I do see the event dates. Also if I open the .dat file in excel, I get all the event dates in the column. Once I save this excel file and open it in spss, and then I see all the event dates. I am attaching the relevant files. Why I get the event dates as blanks when I run spss syntax directly is a mystery, which I hope some one will throw light on.
