it sounds like the easiest way would be with multiple save out commands
and a add files.
save outfile 'time1.sav' /keep=seq1 time1 /rename=(time1=outcome).
save outfile 'time2.sav' /keep=seq1 time2 /rename=(time2=outcome).
save outfile 'time3.sav' /keep=seq1 time3 /rename=(time3=outcome).
add files file='time1.sav'
There may be other ways but this is the first that comes to mind for me.
