Dear Bruce, Garry, John F Hall and Joan Casellas
Thank you so much for helping me with the syntax for selecting records.
Bruce and Garry
The solution offered by both of you worked perfectly.
John - there is a problem with the DO If - function - looks like it does
not like string variables.
I also tried by recoding 'involvementtype' to a numeric. But still
problems with Do If ...
I will try to run it again later when i have the time.
Joan - I have many more variables in my data file based on which i have to
do some more analysis so although I
did a test run on the syntax you sent me I cannot use it at the moment.
Again i will try and run it later when i have the time.
However the method you have suggested actually has given me a clue about
another problem i am facing with other data.
Thanks once again.
