I had to edit to put in carriage returns to get a readable version of this. I don't see the problem.

But you can simplify the logic if you subtract 1999 from the year, and then add 1 if the month is 4 or more. Set to missing if not (1-8)

Using the following code in SPSS 11 and get the following error:

>Error # 4095. Command name: EXECUTE

>The transformations program contains an unclosed LOOP, DO IF, or complex

>file structure. Use the level-of-control shown to the left of the SPSS

>commands to determine the range of LOOPs and DO IFs.

>This command not executed.

Am I missing something at the bottom?

Do if reldate >= date.mdy(4,1,1999) and reldate <= date.mdy(3,31,2000).

comp fy=1.

ELSE if reldate >= date.mdy(4,1,2000) and reldate <= date.mdy(3,31,2001). comp fy=2.

ELSE if reldate >= date.mdy(4,1,2001) and reldate <= date.mdy(3,31,2002). comp fy=3.

ELSE if reldate >= date.mdy(4,1,2002) and reldate <= date.mdy(3,31,2003). comp fy=4.

ELSE if reldate >= date.mdy(4,1,2003) and reldate <= date.mdy(3,31,2004). comp fy=5.

ELSE if reldate >= date.mdy(4,1,2004) and reldate <= date.mdy(3,31,2005). comp fy=6.

ELSE if reldate >= date.mdy(4,1,2005) and reldate <= date.mdy(3,31,2006). comp fy=7.

ELSE if reldate >= date.mdy(4,1,2006) and reldate <= date.mdy(3,31,2007). comp fy=8.
