     Hello, I like to use this software. I googling and accidentally found this
     useful application that may replace my SPSS program. For information, this
     is my first time I use PSPP
     The problem occurs when I open PSPP then open my excel file. My excel
     stuck. It still load and opened but take a long time to open. The problem
     does'nt occurs if I don't open PSPP.
     Does PSPP has conflicts with Excel, especially Excel 2016?
Excel is a program which, so far as I'm aware works only under windows.
So I presume that you are running PSPP under some version of windows.

As we try to make clear, PSPP is not optimal on windows.  You will get
much better performance and reliability running under GNU or under

Having said that, it is known to work under windows, and I cannot
imagine why it would conflict with another program in the manner which
you describe.  My current guess therefore, is that this is a general
problem with your operating system rather than with PSPP.  

However you haven't said what version of PSPP you are running.  You
haven't said which version of the operating system you are running. You
haven't explained what you mean by "my excel file" or by "stuck".
Neither have you described how you have "opened" PSPP.  You seem to
be having some sort of performance issue, so memory exhaustion is a
possibility.   So the amount of ram and disk space on your system might
also be relevant.

If you provide these details, then it is possible that somebody who
has experience with windows might be able to help you.   We have
written a guide to sending good bug reports.  You can read it at
https://www.gnu.org/software/pspp/manual/html_node/Bugs.html  Or, as I
said earlier using GNU/Linux instead might be a lot quicker and 
easier solution.
