Thank you, that actually worked.
To my next problem with Syntax. I am a semi-experienced user of SPSS, but have so far managed to avoid the Syntax window. Not anymore. Since I haven't worked on syntax code before, I need a little (or maybe a lot of) help.
My problem is this: I have responses from a survey that nobody thought to make "analyzable", hence my problems. I have a variable which includes 11 different age groups. I want to recode these into values ranging from 0 to 11. My code is:
RECODE Q21 (convert) ('Under 20'=0) ('20-24'=1) ('25-29'=2) ('30-34'=3) ('35-39'=4) ('40-44'=5) ('45-49'=6) ('50-54'=7) ('55-59'=8) ('60-64'=9) ('65-69'=10) ('Over 69'=11)
When I do this it just gives me values of .00 on each and every one of the groups. What am I doing wrong?? I have checked for blanks and everything, it still gives me the value of .00.
Someone, please help me!
