Hi Folks,

I have to do a series of analyses for six different communities in one dataset. The communities are coded from 1 to 6. I the past, I have created six different filters and had lots of code. It dawned on me that there is a more parsimonious way of doing this, and I thought that LOOP might work; having never used it before, I tried to adapt an example form the syntax manual, but to no avail. I have pasted my code below... what have I done wrong?

LOOP #I - 1 TO 6. COMPUTE filter_$=(Comm=#I). VARIABLE LABEL filter_$ '(Comm=#I) (FILTER)'. VALUE LABELS filter_$ 0 'Not Selected' 1 'Selected'. FORMAT filter_$ (f1.0). FILTER BY filter_$. EXECUTE .

FREQUENCIES /*Descriptive statistics for selected variables*/ VARIABLES=sec01_04 Sec02_03 Sec02_06 Sec02_10 Sec02_12 Sec11_04 Sec11_09 @NEP_SCALE /STATISTICS=STDDEV MINIMUM MAXIMUM SEMEAN MEAN MODE /ORDER= ANALYSIS .


Thanks for any help you can provide,

- Howie _______________________________
