Try exporting the survey and the answers (VV export) and import those at another system (or our Demo) and then test the SPSS export there.

I've tried to import the VV file on a newly installed limesurvey server. The problem is much bigger than I expected: all of answers are empty, i have only ids and status data (finished, lang).
SPSS syntax export from the new server is better than original system's and I succeed only a with a mixed solution: using spss data export from the original server and the syntax from the new i have now data in about the 80% percent of questions, but some columns still have missing.

After several tries, I managed as follows:
- made a new install of LS
- created a full sql dump from the original server
- uncommented utf8 settings
- restored the new databese from the original dump

I had only minor problems (in several surveys) with character encoding exported sps syntax and data. I solved by opening in Winword as UTF8 and saving with Central European Windows settings.

Hmm, might be a server setting related problem, because I have never heard about such a problem before.
