Use the Match Conditional Function

This example walks you through using the Match conditional function.

Suppose that you want a Match conditional for the nominal variable Type from the Hot sample data table.

1. In the Formula Editor, select Type from the Columns list.

2. Select Conditional from the Functions list.

3. Select Match.

4. Select Add Match Arguments from Data.

The values are automatically filled in.

Note: Rather than complete step 2 through step 4, hold down the Shift key, select Conditional from the Functions list, and then select Match.

Figure 7.22 Automatically Filling a Match Conditional Statement 

If you do not want the values filled in for you, select Do Not Add from the Match list instead of Add Arguments from Data.
