Subject: Merge, Update, or Quit For the Day?
I am an SPSS newbie and am probably making this harder than it needs to be: I have repeatedly
attempted to merge two disparate .sav files together, keyed off of a single, shared identifier (i.e.,
both files contain the same students identified by SSN). One file is unduplicated, with its own set of
variables, and the other is duplicated (i.e., by classes taken in a given semester) with its own set of
variables. What I would like to do is to merge these two -- the unduplicated into the duplicated file -
- so that there are no missing data. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
