Stat/Transfer simplifies the transfer of statistical data from one program to another. Stat/Transfer may be run from the Start menu as follows:

Start > SSC Network > Statistics and Analysis > Stat-Transfer

If you wish to transfer the entire data set, you need only complete the Transfer dialog box as shown below.

In this example an Excel spreadsheet is transferred into an SPSS data set. To discover what types of data files are supported click either the Input File Type or Output File Type drop-down list boxes.

More complex transfers will require the use of other dialog boxes. Of particular relevance to social scientists is the ability to transfer SAS datasets into SPSS data files.
