Dear all,

When I use this newest version of the manager( r525) using sample.epx, I encountered export issues in win7 and xp.
I exported the sample.epx to SPSS file format, but SPSS gave me the warning: >Warning # 1151 
>A field to be read under the EDATE format is invalid.  The field must contain 
>day, month, and year separated by spaces, dashes, slashes, decimal points, or 
>commas.  Note that American style dates (month/day/year) can be read under the 
>ADATE format. 
>Command line: 21  Current case: 1  Current splitfile group: 1 
>Field contents: '201012/09/' 
>Record number: 1  Starting column: 36  Record length: 8192

I checked the syntax in the sample.sps. The segment VL3 27-35(A) is not correct. It should be VL3 27-29(A) because the length of the field VL3 is 3 according to its field definition.

Similar field length issue occurred in exporting files to CSV format.
