I don't know R, but if you go to http://stat.ethz.ch/R-manual/R-patched/library/foreign/html/00Index.html
you will find a routine that reads SPSS.

I cannot verify whether the file is comma-delimited or tab-delimited as I do not have SPSS. If I did I would be able to do this without the assistance of those more knowledgeable than I. I have only Stata and R available to me. Thanks for the assistance and the link.

Hopefully that routine will do the trick. If not I would suggest

* Hunt around for some kindly friend who has Stat/Transfer, SPSS, or DBMSCopy who will do the conversion for you

* Peggy's email address is at washington.edu - surely somewhere on campus somebody has the above programs

* Splurge and buy Stat/Transfer, a very handy little program. See

Or, better yet, you might qualify for gradplan pricing ($63, at least at my school). See
