I have struggled with this in the past, and in the end found that conversion
utilities were the way to go (but this presumes you have access to the
system that created the sav files in the first place).
You have the option of linking to an SPSS Inc. provided Windows dll, seach
for "SPSS Developer's Guide" on support.spss.com <http://support.spss.com>.
You can also try reverse-engineering the new file format, if you can find
it. The one I started with is available here at the link below. But this is
an old document and will probably not hold up for recent files.
You may also have some luck with this link:
