I don't think that'll quite do it, as the original logic required a 1
and a 2 value for some matched pair of variables, not simply for any
variables in the two sets. But, on the same assumptions, this should:
DO REPEAT varXXX0 = var0010 TO var0750
/vXXX7 = v0017 TO v0757.
. if (varXXX0 = 1 and vXXX7 = 2) clean = 1.
