This should work for filtering.

*string data.

compute selct1 = (var00001 ne "I do not remember").


filter by selct1.

*or if numeric.

compute selct2 =(var00002 ne 1).


filter by selct2.

I have a dichotomous variable where the respondants answer to the response "I do not remember" I want to filter out the responses that checked I do not rember and then do a count on 10 ohter variables. I would like any suggestions on how I might accomplish this.

i.e. I have 18 people who checked this response, I do not want to use these 18 response with the other possible response.
