You can obtain Data Drivers for IBM SPSS (Windows version) by logging into your Passport Advantage account (DSW). You need to select the eAssembly kit for Data Drivers as they are not automatically downloaded with IBM SPSS Base package.
Remember that data drivers are not platform specific. These drivers are not included when you download IBM SPSS trial package.
Excerpt from Downloading IBM SPSS
Drivers to support various data sources in IBM SPSS Statistics Desktop, Developer, and Server.
Do I need it? It is optional. You only need drivers if you need support for opening data from a database or opening IBM SPSS Data Collection data.
What do I need to download? If you decide that you want database drivers, download “IBM SPSS Data Access Pack 6.1”.
If you have Salesforce.com at your site and you need to open Salesforce data in SPSS Statistics, download “IBM SPSS Data Access Pack for Salesforce.com”. If you need to open Data Collection data, download the eImages with “Data Collection” in the name, including one language of the Installation Guide and the 32-bit or 64-bit version of the “Developer Library” and “Developer Kit”.
Note: This eAssembly also contains “IBM SPSS Statistics Data File Drivers”. The Statistics data file drivers allow you to read SPSS Statistics (.sav) data files in applications that support Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) or Java Database Connectivity (JDBC). This is optional. Only download it if you need it.
