Many thanks to all those who helped me with this problem - I
discovered that my previous attempts to do what everyone recommended
were hampered by a stray hard return in the syntax (between the list
of variable names and the value labels), which caused error messages
which I misinterpreted as not being able to the command at all!
Also many thanks to those who pointed out that 'problem20' was too
long a variable name - when I rechecked this morning it was
'proble20'. I was just in a hurry to get home last night!
