Nor would ANY:

COMPUTE chf = ANY(dx, '39891, etc)

That seems to me to be the clearest syntax (at least if you are not using Python :-)).

Quite right. RECODE ... INTO could be easier still; among other things, it wouldn't require pre-setting the target variables to 0:

RECODE dx ('39891', '4280', '4281', '4289' = 1) (ELSE = 0) INTO chf.
