I have 500,000 cases need to append the year to each of them. The information on the year is in hard copy. Thankfully, there are only five years: 2009 - 2013. There will be about 100,000 cases for each year. I tried this with some success:
I say "some success" because using this strategy, I have to write a syntax for each case, which is too tedious. Is there a way to specify a range like:
DO IF(1D=1 through 100000)
I am pretty sure "through" is not a spss command. I apologize for my ignorance.
