SPSS Value Labels Fail with grids

Hello there,

When I export my survey data to SPSS the Value labels gets the cols' values, not the rows' values as I wanted,

Example (Yep, it's in Swedish but I think you get what I'm addressing):

===========================
Question Name: Q60
===========================
Type: Grid
Question Direction: Columns
---------------------------

[Header 1]:
Var vänlig sätt ett kryss i den ruta som motsvarar den inkomstgrupp du själv tillhör under <u>Din personliga månadsinkomst</u> och ett kryss i den ruta som motsvarar den inkomstgrupp ditt hushåll tillhör under <u>Hushållets totala månadsinkomst</u>.

[Row List]:
List Name: Q60RowList
Type: Predefined

1    Har ingen inkomst
2    Mindre än 8 000 kronor/månad
3    8 000-8 999 kronor/månad
4    9 000-9 999 kronor/månad
5    10 000-11 999 kronor/månad
6    12 000-13 999 kronor/månad
7    14 000-16 499 kronor/månad
8    16 500-18 999 kronor/månad
9    19 000-21 999 kronor/månad
10    22 000-24 999 kronor/månad
11    25 000-29 499 kronor/månad
12    29 500-34 999 kronor/månad
13    35 000-41 999 kronor/månad
14    42 000-49 999 kronor/månad
15    50 000-64 999 kronor/månad
16    65 000-83 999 kronor/månad
17    84 000 kronor/månad eller mer
Total

[Column List]:
List Name: Q60ColList
Type: Predefined

1    Din personliga månadsinkomst
2    Hushållets totala månadsinkomst

**************

This gives two variables (as expected), Q60_c1 and Q60_c2.
However, the value labels should be the 17 income bands but these are my value labels for both variables:

0    Din personliga månadsinkomst
1    Hushållets totala månadsinkomst

Do I need to change my export settings?
I'm using v8.0.0.

in grid settings, is this question row or column based?
If it's Question Direction you mean then the answer is Columns.

This is a known issue and will be fixed in 8.0.2

Thanks!
If you want, you can send me the study and data and I can perform the export for you in the mean time.
Thanks Mike, that's very kind of you but I've already done most of the relabeling syntax and I also need to export the data several times during the fieldwork.
