|Subject: ||IF SYSMIS...|
|Content-Type: ||text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"|
I am trying to compute a variable using a series of IF statements.
I want to include a statement with this basic structure:
IF (X=SYSMIS) Y=1.
My actual code is a little more complex, but this is the basic premise.
Problem is, I find that the SYSMIS is not recognized as a valid form of
syntax to use in IF statements. Instead, it is recognized as a possible
variable name. Does anyone know how to resolve this problem and have SYSMIS
recognized as a value of variable X instead of a variable in itself?
Thanks in advance.
