If you're not looking for syntax (or want to use GUI to go through the
steps and then paste the syntax), you can use identify duplicate cases.
Identify duplicate cases can be used if you have a common
identification number for each individual, such as student/patient ID or
social security number.
As you go through the steps select "Sequential count of matching case
in each group" under Variables To Create. This will number all
occurances of the same ID number, as 1, 2, 3...if an ID number does not
have a match, it will be given a zero (but this really means there is
only 1 case).

I have an easy problem (I reckon). I need to generate a variable
basically repeats the numbers 1, 2, 3. In other words, I have a data
in which each individual has three records (cases) and I just need to
up the different records as 1, 2, 3. Could someone tell me how to do
