Subject:      Filter cases but keep SYSMIS cases
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed

Hello all:

I am trying to filter some cases out of a sample. I am using a filter variable that has 6 categories (1-6) and I want to keep all the cases with codes 1-5 and the SYSMIS cases, but delete the cases with a code of 6. When I use this syntax, SELECT IF(var<6), I lose all the SYSMIS cases. Is there a way that I can keep the SYSMIS cases?
