Is there any way keep characters like ñ, á, é, ç, etc. while exporting results to spss?
(The ones in the text of the questions as well as the ones in the answers of the free text questions)
Thanks for your help!

It's the 'funny' thing with SPSS v15 or anterior...
but if you can update to v16 there's no problem now.
I've tried a lot of thing to avoid this encoding and loose my time;
Now I prefer replace those characters directly (and carefully) into the data file via select all/replace all.

Have you checked if SPSS is loading files in Unicode mode?

SPSS 16 and above supports Unicode.

I use spss 14; I tried version 19 and in that one the export works correctly. Thanks for the help!
