Hi Jon, Peter,

thanks for your immediate help. The command 
works fine -- ok, I just took a part of the whole dataset. 

BTW: I use SPSS 10.0... so read.spss won't work.

That's curious. 'My' read.table doesn't know the echo-
argument (I use r1.2.3, win32). Have a look at the results 
of ?read.table:

read.table(file, header = FALSE, sep = "", quote = "\"'", 
dec = ".", row.names, col.names, as.is = FALSE, na.strings 
= "NA", skip = 0, check.names = TRUE, fill = FALSE,         
strip.white = FALSE, blank.lines.skip = TRUE)

Thanks again for your help,
