The MRAN snapshots for R 3.4.3 contains R packages build on R 3.4.4 for external packages like haven. We want to use haven 1.1.2 for reading the SPSS output (.sav) with specific language encodings (available on haven 1.1.2 & above). The challenge is that MLS Server 9.3 does not support any versions above R 3.4.3, so we are struck. Can you please suggest, any other package that may help us in this case or possibility of getting haven 1.1.2 build on R 3.4.3. Let me know, if you need more details.
This is a Chinese project, the encoding that we are using is : “GB18030" with haven 1. 1. 2.
