I would like to define missing values for string variables and can't
seem to do that. The Help Section says this:
All string values, including null or blank values, are considered to be
valid unless you explicitly define them as missing. To define null or
blank values as missing for a string variable, enter a single space in
one of the fields under the Discrete missing values selection.
This doesn't seem to work though as I am not able to change anything (or
even access) under Missing for strings variables like you can for
I hope this makes sense. I am really stuck here and need to find the
quickest and easiest way to define missing values for string variables
without recoding them all!
Any help you can provide would be MUCH appreciated.
