Subject:      How to cut a part of string variable?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="koi8-r"

Hello dear list-members! I have to solve such a problem. I've .sav file that contains about 500 cases and only 1 string variable. The string variable looks like 'word1 word2' where word1 is the town and word2 is the region. I need to divide this string variable into two: town and region. In other words, now I have

var1 'word1 word2'

and I want to have

var1 'word1' var2 'word2'

Can anyone help me?

Thank you in advance.

Eugen Bolshov, Ukraine, Kiev
