As users have often problems with importing and exporting spreadsheet data in PSPP it might be a good idea to have an import and export window for Gnumeric and ODS in the GUI under the File tab. This like the import for CSV files.

BTW as current versions of MSOffice are also able to handle the ODS format this will be a great benefit for MSWindows users.

The implementation can be an import and an export box in the "file" tab. In this box there can be a sub box for the different formats.

A fancy box witch automatically fills the possible fields would be nice, but I guess a lot of users would already be happy with a box which makes it possible to import and export the whole dataset to 1 spreadsheet or importing the same.

Well it can. You just have to open a syntax window and type

A fancy Dialog to automajically set the the fields etc. would certainly be nice.

PSPP claims to support Gnumeric files.
But PSPPIRE can not open/import Gnumeric file.
