Two missing values

Postby gacharya » Sun Jun 24, 2007 7:17 pm

Hi there,

I'm having a bit of a dilemma. There is already defined a missing value of 9 and then there are cases where they are blank. I want to code those blank
numeric values to an 8, *not* a 9. How can I do this?? But, when I try to recode into the same variable, it recodes everything to an 8 (including the 9!). How do I deal with this? Thanks so much!

Are you asking to recode sysmis into code 8, if so then

Recode var ($sysmis=8).
Exec.
