Hello dear JAMOVI users and developers,

I Am using JAMOVI on MAcOS Catalina 10.15.6 and I Am having a problem exporting my data (just the data Table) as SPSS or as STATA file (dta) or as SAS file, I am always getting the message:
Save Failed
a provided name contains an illegal character.
Can any one help and suggest a solution. Some times I need to perform a test in STATA for example so I would like to save the data table from JAMOVI in a format, which enable opening in STATA or SPSS or SAS all the export or save as options are not working, the only option is CSV, but I am getting some strange saved file here as well

double-check you're using a very recent version of jamovi (either the 1.2.27, or the 1.6), and if it's still a problem, attach the .csv file here (or send it to contact <at> and we'll take a look.
