Recode ZIP-code

Postby Henk_spss » Thu Apr 03, 2014 6:30 am

Dear all,

I would like to recode ZIP-codes variable '1234AB' and '1234 AB' into '1234' in a large number of participants, to merge this later on with SES information.

Is there an easy way to create a syntax for this?

Thanks in advance,

Kind Regards,

Henk.

look into substring syntax.
