I regularly work in SPSS with large files created by programmers in SAS,
which are then split into several Excel files (since total # of records
exceeds the # of records a single Excel file can hold) and forwarded to
me. I then open and save the Excel files as separate SPSS files before
merging these into a big SPSS file. This is cumbersome and time-consuming
and I'm looking for tools to streamline the process.
A SAS-using friend recommended Stat/Transfer. Any experience out there
with Stat/Transfer or any other application to directly transfer large
data files from SAS to SPSS and vice versa? (I'm using SPSS 14.0 and my
colleagues use SAS 8.x).
