I have a query, if you could help me out please.
We programmed a survey using arabic characters and the program was ok - text showed on browser without encountering any problems.
Now we received the dat files for the survey, but in all the places where it was completed with arabic characters I have question marks "?" (for example: Q9B_r1_c1,??????), thus in my datfile and SPSS database all open-ended variables have question marks where arabic characters have been used.
How could I solve this issue? I need for arabic characters to show instead of "?".
