The question is I have nominal variables in different bases with not the same value labels, so we deside to reverse all valiables into strings, but I don't know how to save the labels, but not the values. Is there some syntax command for those cases or maybe there is some other way to do it?
Doing it by saving document as Excel with labels and copiing it back to spss is too long, because bases are big.
Sorry, I expressed incorrectly.
the TYPE of variable City is Numeric (level is Nominal). And I need Type String, but seeing in words, not numbers.
If I just change the Type by hands it returns numbers with spases (if I delite values of variable there gonna be just numbers in data).
And again City labels are shown but I need to change Type and being them strings with words.
OK, if understand, below is an illustrative code for the STRING + RECODE Function set found under Transform > Recode into different variables - Set your variable name then the Old New tab at the bottom and set the Output variable as String + width
