I thought about, but did not try, something like

val lab v1 to vn (lo thru hi) '' .

It works with missing values using (), but not with val lab.

Here's something I just tried on a real data set.

You have to go into variable view, I'm afraid.

Tried deleting whole column, but nothing happened, so highlight the cell with None

ctrl+c to copy cell then drag to all cells in column:

ctrl+v to paste to all cells in column

et voilĂ !

That was fun!

Does this help?

Hello All,

Is there away to delete the values labels for all variables without accessing the variable view and deleting the labels one at a time?
