Subject: Combining select values from two variables
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII
Greetings from Denver. I have been trying to figure out how to make
some SAS code do the same thing in SPSS and can't figure out the syntax.
The SAS code is...
if 1 <= howlong <= 2 then pasttwo = 1; else
if 3 <= howlong <= 5 or hadmam = 2 then pasttwo = 2; else
pasttwo = .;
I want to create a new variable called PASTTWO using values from
HOWLONG and HADMAM. The RECODE command will only work for one variable
at a time so HOWLONG and HADMAM cannot be "combined" into the PASTTWO.
If anybody has any tips, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
