Subject: multiple records per case
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
I've been trying to create a data file with 3 records per case; I want to
have a case id in the first 23 columns of each record. After that each
record has different variables in it. I've tried many ways to read the data
into 3 records but no luck. SPSS doesn't like the fact that I'm repeating
the case id on each record.
I have a fixed ascii data file which has the three records per case but I
can't read it into SPSS as 3 records. I also tried writing the data file so
that information for all cases was in 1 record and tried to read that into 3
records in SPSS. Nope. The data files are being written from an SPSS file
where all the information is on one record per case. Help please.
