Yet another method (might be marginally faster than the DO REPEAT as it short circuits the lookup).: Would be interesting to compare the 3 approaches (LOOP/DO REPEAT/ANY?). HTH, David -- data list / test1 1-5 (A) test2 7-11 (A) test3 13-17 (A). begin data 50000 64233 44444 88888 00321 23456 89989 50000 23242 end data. VECTOR test=test1 to test3. LOOP #=1 to 3. COMPUTE MAMM=LTRIM(RTRIM(test(#)))="50000". END LOOP IF MAMM. end loop. -- View this message in context: Sent from the SPSSX Discussion mailing list archive at
