Subject: Recovering Transformations
I was given a set of data with 71 variables in which transformations were
performed to create an additional 15 variables. I am attempting to include
additional cases to the original data set but I am unable to compute the values
for the addtional 15 variables since there is no documentation. Is there
some command or procedure in SPSS that will show me which variables were
summed or recoded (similar to Excel)? I have asked the person who created the
15 additional variables and he no longer remembers!
P.S. The data set was entered in SPSSWIN 6.1 and is also currently being
processed in SPSSWIN 6.1.
Thank you for your assistance.
