This is the same issue as reported in bug #59008 and for the reasons discussed there is unfixable except by user education.

I first tried to open an existing file. Then I saved it from the gui and opened it again. See my output:

error: Could not open `C:\Users\ik\Downloads\tyProjektyQJ1520322 - VodníštítekData ČHMÚ.csv': No such file or directory



I assume this is related at https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?47331

Actually I tested this with a file name with Czech characters.

I guess this is still the old issue of MSWindows code files against UTF8

I can confirm this. This issue is still available in MSWindows version build from the source of 2018-07-07

I tested on MacOS to open a file in a directory

/Users/fritz/Dir - with space and üüü in/QJ1520322 - Vodní štítek/Data ČHMÚ

which opens fine. Tested this on version psppire 0.10.2.

Could you tell us which pspp version you use? So it seems to be Windows only.

I use Czech names of folders in Windows 10 (64b), but PSPP has a problem read files in this folders. I have been got an error:

Could not open `D:\Dokumenty\Projekty\QJ1520322 - Vodní štítek\Data ČHMÚ
\vyber_odovliv_81_15_Qa.csv': No such file or directory

But the same file in the root directory `D:\vyber_odovliv_81_15_Qa.csv' is read correctly.
