What do you want to test?

You will get the most important descriptives like the mean, median, standard deviation, kurtosis, skewness, min, max in the data file view. However, if you want to assess other descriptives like frequencies you probably should go with SPSS or Excel.

Or do you want to include them as control variable into your model? The best way to do that is to include them as single-indicator constructs.
