Reading a .sav file with SPSS Input

Reading a .sav file with SPSS Input

Hi experts,

I want to read data from a .sav file by using the components tSPSSInput and tLogRow.  

This job should be one of the easiest:

But I doesn‘ t work.

After defining my filename,  I choose „Sync schema“ for retriving the schema from my .sav file.

Then I want to have a look at the file’s columns through pressing the three dots next to „Edit schema“. But nothing is shown:

When I change my .sav file I have the same problem.


Notice everything worked fine when I used tSPSSStructure component with the same filename as you can see in the screenshot below:

What could I try to solve my problem?


Thanks and best regards,
