Subject: Adding Records/Cases...
I could figure out a very lengthy syntax file to do this, but I thought
there should be an easier macro solution to this problem.
I have a data set with about 1000 records. About 10% of the records have a
variable/flag which indicates that this particular record actually
represents multiple records. E.g., if Flag = 1 and #Records = 3, then this
case should really be 3 cases instead of one. In this case, I need to add
2 additional identical cases so that the total number is 3. For a number
of reasons too lengthy to explain, I can't simply use the weight
function. Also, there a large jumps between the number of records each
case represents, e.g., most of the cases represent 1, some 2, some 3, but
then a few 10 another 16, another 120, another 350.
Could someone point me in the correct direction?
Thanks in advance.
