Opening a SAV file

Hi I am new to SPSS. I have downloaded it to my PC. I have been sent Data to Practice in a SAV file. My PC will not open it, it is encrypted. What do I do to make this SAV file readable? Thank you!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

SAV does not open by just double clicking, SAV can be only read by the program that created it. If you have downloaded it, maybe try running the program or EXE.

    Right click on a SPSS .sav file. Select Open With. Choose Default Program. On Browse > Favorite Links > Computer and click Local Disk. Again browse to the SPSS Statistics installation folder and select Stats.exe then click Open.

    You can't "open" it other than using a text or hex editor. And "opening" it won't do you any good -- it'll be effectively gibberish.

    Instead, you need to upload it to your server as a savefile and restore it to your server. Once it's properly restored, follow whatever instructions are supplied for it.

    It's a server file, not a PC file. It's only in a form that allows a PC to transfer it, not use it.

    You need to save the file to your system and restore it. This is the only way you system will recognize the file. The follow the restore method to make the file readable. If you still cannot read the file, you may need to contact the sender of the file and tell then you need one that is not encrypted.
