All,

I must be doing something wrong or misunderstanding the documetation but ...

This is the frequencies for the variable going in to the recode (apologies if tabs are not preserved).

P1RAAC1 A1 Par: Alcohol Abuse Count Frequency Percent Valid Percent Cumulative Percent Valid .00 89 13.2 13.6 13.6 1.00 102 15.1 15.6 29.2 2.00 58 8.6 8.9 38.1 ... 12.00 24 3.6 3.7 98.3 13.00 11 1.6 1.7 100.0 Total 654 97.0 100.0 Missing 99.00 19 2.8 System 1 .1 Total 20 3.0 Total 674 100.0

This the recode statement.

RECODE P1RAAC1(0 1=0)(2=2)(3 THRU 13=3)(MISSING=9).

And this is the result

P1RAAC1 A1 Par: Alcohol Abuse Count Frequency Percent Valid Percent Cumulative Percent Valid .00 0-1 NonAlc 191 28.3 28.4 28.4 2.00 2 Maybe 58 8.6 8.6 37.0 3.00 3+ Definite 405 60.1 60.2 97.2 99.00 19 2.8 2.8 100.0 Total 673 99.9 100.0 Missing 9.00 1 .1 Total 674 100.0

As I read the documentation for 13, the 'missing' keyword causes user missing and system missing value to be coded to sysmis on the output. It doesn't look like this is happening here. Comments?
