I've looked and looked but can't seem to find the solution to what seems a simple problem. I'm using SPSS 16.
What I want to do is select multiple values from one variable but not all. For example, I go to menu data/select cases if these criteria are met:
(Prob = 14 or Prob=40) AND (Cat = 1 or Cat = 3). So I want values 14 or 40 from Prob and values 1 or 3 from Cat. Can I do this without having to repeat the variable name over an over again?
I tried: (Prob =14 | 40) And (Cat=1 | 3) which doesn't work. I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong or maybe I do have to repeat the variable name.
I hope this is clear and thanks. I'm very happy to have found this forum.
