String containing value --> compute into new variable

Postby mmhj » Fri May 05, 2017 1:17 pm

Hi all,

In my export, there is a variable that has values such as 2/4/5 or 1/3/5.
I'm looking for a syntax that looks if a certain case CONTAINS a number and then gives another variable a '1' as a value.
The attachment shows how: if 'Behoeften_13' contains '3', so '@13_3' is given a '1'.

I've done it manually now but this is not doable for the entire file. I've looked for syntaxes like the 'transform into new variable' ones but they don't seem to cover the 'contain' bit (they only do =, >, <, etc).

Anyone?

Thanks!
