I am getting the following error when trying to open the linked survey from the General Social Survey: https://gss.norc.org/Documents/spss/2018_spss.zip

Cannot convert float infinity to integer

I am able to open it in SPSS and open other .sav files in jamovi (version 1.6.1). I'm just not sure what the error is in the dataset to be able to fix it so it can be opened in jamovi.

Ideally I would like to be able to keep it in .sav file so it retains the descriptions of the items and the value labels. This is for a student project and most students are new to statistics so this would help keep this as easy as possible for them. If there is another workaround without losing this information that I'm not aware of, I'd greatly appreciate that as well!
