Selecting specific observations from a large dataset, HEEELP

Postby Niat » Wed Sep 28, 2011 3:26 pm

Hello!

I have two SPSS-files. One containing 400 id-numbers and the other file containing a much larger set of data including more variables. How do i extract the 400 id-numbers and their data from the large data set????

Perhaps I'm misunderstanding the question -- but have you tried the 'select if' function and copy into a new dataset?
