Hi Carol,

Thanks for the help. The problem is though, that this way you only save the frequency of that multiple response set. When i run the syntax it comes up with the frequency table, but if i want to use the mult response set for something else(crosstabbing), i would have to define it again. Or save the syntaxes of all possible crosstabs before i quit the program?? Isn't there some way to save the syntax for just defining the multiple response set?

Hi, Daan & listers,

Just save the syntax. Next time you generate a multiple response set, set up a multiple response Frequencies and then hit the PASTE button, which saves the syntax into a Syntax window. Here's an example:

MULT RESPONSE GROUPS=$cond 'Pre-existing Conditions' (iacond1 iacond2 iacond3 iacond4 iacond5 iacond6 iacond7 iacond8 (1)) /FREQUENCIES=$cond .

If you own the Custom Tables module, use that instead if you want tables with the "pretty" format instead of the "draft" output. Also, if you ever copy & paste the tables into another package, say Excel for graphing, use Custom Tables instead in order to get the data to land properly in Excel (rather than all in one cell). Here's another example syntax:

* Multiple Response Tables. TABLES /FORMAT BLANK MISSING('') /MDGROUP $cond 'Pre-Existing Conditions' iacond1 iacond2 iacond3 iacond4 iacond5 iacond6 iacond7 iacond8 ( 1 ) /GBASE=CASES /TABLE=$cond .

HTH, Carol
