    Hi there. For some reason SPSS tables go all weird when inserted in word /powerpoint... When I paste them myself, there's no problem, but when opening other peoples (PC-users) documents (IE teachers notes for a lecture) they're all screwed. Anyone out there knows a cure?

    Thanx

    You need to think about your question. You are asking us to cure files submitted to you by anonymous third-parties who are using SPSS on Windows to generate PDFs. Really, really think hard about that one.

    Me no understand:confused: :confused: :confused:
    We use SPSS in school (social science) and my teachers and teammates create notes in word and powerpoint, occasionally using spss-tables. I just have problems displaying theirs correctly... :confused: :confused: :confused:

    Exchanging vector graphics between Windows and the Mac can be problematic. PDF improves the situation, but it is not a perfect solution. Have your little classmates send you the SPSS original files, including tables tables and graphs. You can then export them directly from your installation of SPSS using your fonts and what not.

    thanks for the advice. I'll ask my little classmates that:). Didn't know there was a compatibility issue with vector graphics. Have never encoutered any before this. Thought all that belonged to the old 9.x days where we couldn't read one anothers word-files.:eek:
