R-beta: exchanging data between R/Splus and SPSS

is there any way to exchange (A LOT OF) data between SPPS and R/Splus,
i.e., I want to get data from SPSS into R. It is a huge data frame
with many columns being factors, so manual conversion is out of
question (and there are more data to come).

Exporting ASCII from SPSS seems to loose all level names, and the
portable SPSS format doesn't look too nice.

I've searched S-news and statlib, but only found info about DBMS/copy
which is not installed at our university. Did I miss something?

Any help appreciated,
Fritz Leisch
