Subject:      Counting the first instance of a value
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1

I have the following data:

Class ID A 10 B 11 B 10 C 12 A 13

Where ID is unique to each case and it is possible that a case might be in more than one class. We were trying to get a total count of the case, without counting duplicates (i.e. ID 10 would be counted twice above). Is there a syntax option to just count the first instance of a value when running an analysis (frequencies in this case?).

Thanks!
