Hi,

Just a remark: the second line of the code can be even simpler, I think:

string tab (a1) . compute tab=string(9,pib1). etc.

I am still missing \t and \n and similar abbreviations in SPSS...

Greetings

Jan

here's another way

string tab (a1) . compute tab=string(number('9',n2),pib1). compute x=concat("if",tab,"y=",tab,"""",ltrim(rtrim(y)),"""",tab,"code=",tab,"." ).
