Thanks to everyone who made suggestions regarding methods for deleting large
numbers of rows. There are several good ways.
I have one more request for today.
Now, I'd like to create a variable with case numbers. In the past, I've
created a blank variable and pasted in a number series created from a
spreadsheet. Surely, there's a better way. Each case has only one row. No
two cases share a row. I just need SPSS to insert a number series from the
top of the file to the bottom, with an increment of 1.
