Once students have collected their questionnaire data they tend to input the data into Excel and then ask the question "How do I import Excel data into SPSS?". Now it's much more efficient to enter your data into SPSS if you intend to use SPSS for data analysis. In short, how to get data directly into SPSS is what you need. Cut Excel out of it.
Of course, you could stick to Excel, but if SPSS is new to you, you will feel a lot more familiar with it after you have spent hours entering the data!
