Hello  Dr Jean-Francois!
 That is the default epidata export to SPSS . if you want to have
access to the file in .sav  format, please follow the procedure.

1. Launch your spss software.
2  Go to file menu ->Open-> Syntax.
3. In the syntax window, select all and click on run.

With this steps you can have you files in data file(i.e .sav) instead
of the syntax file.
