    Data lacks variable headers, question order does not match data, help! (case 23396)

    Hi,

    I'm working on my final project for school and used medialab to run an experiment. I checked the experiment numerous times to make sure the data was recording properly (and it was) however, my final data file is a disaster. I can't match any of the participants' data to the question order because the order does not match and the time stamps do not match as well. Also, when loading the data into SPSS only one of the four questionnaires is opened. I've spent weeks trying to figure this out. Does anyone have ideas or help of any kind? It would be greatly appreciated.

    What folder from the Data folder did you pull your data file from?

    What format from those files did you try to import into SPSS? What specific steps did you use when attempting to import that file into SPSS?

    I would be happy to take a look at your data files. Please put the entire folder named Data into a .zip compressed file folder and either upload it here or send me to me directly at support@empirisoft.com (please reference case 23396).
