Add support for accessing IBM SPSS data in .sav format


Add support for accessing IBM SPSS data in .sav format

At the moment is not possible to access IBM SPSS data in .sav format using Qlik ODBC connector.

This leaves only two options:

  1. Using ODBC connection with DSN: https://community.qlik.com/thread/237431 (client-managed only)

  2. Transfer/convert .SAV to .CSV first: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15150586/how-to-open-spss-data-files-in-excel (client-managed and SaaS)


Without the metadata, needing to convert data through CSV is a lot of extra work. So it would be preferable to have native support for IBM SPSS data in .sav format
