Preference

Description

Commit style

Defines the default behavior for recoding columns. Putting the values in a new column is the default setting. Other options are as a formula column (if you’d like to see how the values are being replaced) or replacing the recoded column “in place”.

Script sequence of actions

Saves all of your actions in the script. Selected by default. If the option is deselected, only the original and replacement values are included in the script.

Compress sequence

Combines expressions to simplify the saved script. Selected by default when you select Script sequence of actions.

Remove Empty Items

In a Multiple Response column, excludes empty items in the column when recoding the column in the data table.

Remove Duplicate Items

In a Multiple Response column, excludes duplicate items. For example, if the original data were a, b, b, c, and no changes to those particular items were made, the recoded column in the data table would contain a, b, c.

Sort Items

In a Multiple Response column, sorts items alphabetically. For example, if the original data were b, a, c, and no changes to those particular items were made, the recoded column in the data table would contain a, b, c.
