I'm confused by this part of your posting.
>>The problem is the client hasn't been to clever and has used a different
order in this years, however the var labels are still the same, does
anyone have any good potential solutions? To match up the correct n_
from 2006 with the correct one for 2007?
I think you are saying that, for example, the variable order in 2006 was
n_1, n_2, n_3 while the order in 2007 is n_3, n_1, n_2. And, it is true that
N_1 in the 2006 dataset is the same data element as n_1 in 2007 and both has
the variable label.
If all this so, I don't think there is problem. The add files command should
sort things out correctly.
