Recoding Values  Example
The following set of (two) recoding conditions will convert ("translate")
all cases (observations) in the currently highlighted variable into 1
(if the value of variable number 1 for those cases is positive or zero)
or into 1 (if the value of variable number 1 for those cases is negative).

Include If: 
New Value: 
Category
1 
v1>=0 
1 
Category
2 
v1<0 
1 
Note that recoding conditions may be defined
such that the new values of the current variable do not depend on the
old values of that variable, but only on values of some other variables
in the data set. In other words, the currently highlighted variable does
not have to be included in the text of the recoding conditions; for instance
in this example, the currently highlighted variable could be variable
number 3, and its new ("recoded") values will depend only on
values of variable number 1. If the currently highlighted variable was
variable number 1, then its values would be "translated" into
new ones (positive values would "become" 1 and negative values
would "become" 1). See also: Recoding
Values.
