Dear SPSS listers. I'm running a syntax to get a new variable with mixed conditional requisites: compute new=0. if Age<=14 & icd3<="A09" new=1. execute.

Age is a numeric variable and icd3 is a string variable. When I manually tried to compare results (filtering) I noticed that my syntax included the missing values (defined as blanks). How can I avoid this, since I need to build a longer set of conditionals?

Thanks. --
