Subject: Help with errors
I have a slight problem with a data file and am coming up against a
brick wall, your help will be most appreciated!!!
I received a data file with some errors present in one of the
variables, I have now also been sent an excel file with corrections for
the data along with the unique identifier for the both files. However
this new data only corrects the mistakes in the old file, and is only
composed of the variable needed and the unique identifier,
This prevents me from using the add variable and add cases commands as
replacing the specified variable will then render some cases data less,
and adding cases will result in cases with only single variable
Therefore, my question is, is there a way to "overwrite" specific cases
within a variable, i.e. based upon a common unique identifier, and leave
the rest untouched, so as to rectify my problem.....
I hope this is clear, although I have a feeling it is not,
Thanks in advance!
