Importing survey archive into Version 2.05+

Hello everybody,

I conducted a survey in Version 2.00+ Build 121209, which is now finished (active, but expired). Next, I would like to import the complete survey (structure, tokens, results) into Version 2.05+ Build 141003 so as to be able to use the new feature of exporting results in Stata format, which is only available in version 2.05+.

However, when I export the survey archive (.lsa file) from Version 2.00+, create a new survey in Version 2.05+ and import the .lsa file into Version 2.05+, only the survey structure is transferred, the new survey contains neither the tokens nor the results of the old survey. I have a feeling that something goes wrong during the first step - while the manual says that the export survey archive command creates a zip-file, to me it seems as if a simple .lsa file rather than a zip-file was created. Unfortunately, however, I can't fix the problem ...

Does somebody know what to do? Many, many thanks for your help!
