Subject: selecting valid cases only for various variables
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
From a data set with multiple variables I would like to only select
cases that have valid values, so would like to exclude those I coded
missing. Not all cases have 'consistent' missing values, they differ for
various variables and for the purpose of my analysis I can only include
those that have valid cases throughout.
I am looking for any shortcut to the long option of stating the valid
values for each of the variables separately? something like select if
'all cases that are valid'.
Thanks for any help!
