When exported from epidata, variables are limited to 8 characters.
Recent version of SPSS (V11 and above) allows longer names.

Would it be possible to add an option on the export dialog box to allow 
a length fixed by the user ?
A command line option for epic would be necessary to take into account 
this parameter.

In CHK files it is possible to specify MISSING VALUES with the 
appropriate command.
When data are exported to SPSS, the MISSING VALUES syntax is not created.
Would it be possible to add this syntax in the next minor release of 
Epidata ?

Thanks for all.
