The help for -save- tells you directly

"If you are using Stata 13 and want to save a file so that it may be
read by someone using Stata 11 or Stata 12, simply use the saveold
command."

But if you are using Stata 13, and wish to save a file to be read by
Stata 10 or some earlier version, you need either Stata 11 (or some
yet earlier version) or to export in some other form (see -help
export-).

Sergiy Radyakin has various extras that may help you. He'll post on
this, no doubt.

Presumably SPSS can read files other than .dta too.
