The transfer process stops at around the 66,000th case with the message "Invalid
floating point operation." I believe this to be a systematic problem with one or
more of the variables. Has anybody encountered a similar problem and would know
how to find the problem variables?
That problem is almost always do to some sort of corruption in the file. You should check to see if SPSS can read the file. If it can (and your data are sensible in SPSS) please get in touch with me directly.

Best,

Steve
