Creating Variables in SPSS 12.0
Posted on 2008-06-16
I'm not sure why this simple line of code JUST doesn't seem to work for me. I am trying to create variables in SPSS and assign types and labels for them and while attempting the following code
DATA LIST FREE /
I keep getting the error:
">Error # 4385. Command name: DATA LIST
>More variables appeared in the variable list than formats were specified
>This command not executed."
I need to use syntax to build the variables, assign the types, give them a width, decimals, add labels, and values but if I can't even give them a type, I can't move forward.
Any help is very highly appreciated. Please, help!
I am new to SPSS and therefore a newbie. Any help would be very seriously appreciated here!
