Subject: changing variable from string to numeric
Content-type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
Hello, is there a syntax I can write for changing string variables into
numeric ones? When I called SPSS help line they told me that I have to go
into the SPSS window and change each variable separately from string to
numeric but I find it hard to believe that there would be no syntax I can
write to change a whole list of variables at once. All these string
variables have only numeric values.
thanks a lot.
