2. If I manage to update Stat - Transfer Ver 6.0, and transfer my original Ver 7.0 files to SPSS , will I still face the same problem (a variable name which is more than 8 characters) this time with SPSS.
Stat/Transfer will make your variable names legal in the target system. In this case, it will truncate the variable names to eight characters, substitute underscores for illegal characters such as blanks, and finally, if necessary, it will make your variable names unique by appending a digit.

Best,

Steve
