     Hi there,
     Thanks for your help both. Yes, I forgot to say I'm using the windows
     version.  Although my IT skills are pretty good, the truncation issue
     isn't something I'm that aware of in Windows as I've never had that
     problem before besides where i'm saving a file in a folder, within a
     folder, within another folder...etc so that the path is really long and
     sometimes that causes a problem with other programmes when saving the
     file i think.
     What Harry suggested may be correct though...on my office computer it
     seems to keep the file name but when i take the pspp sav file home and
     use it there, this is maybe where the file name gets truncated! I'll
     have to test this theory and will let you know.

I suspect Harry is probably right.  Older Windows versions can only have 
8 characters long (although the complete path can be longer).  That is why
you see it truncated.
