Applying variable definition attributes to multiple variables

After you have defined variable definition attributes for a variable, you can copy one or more attributes and apply them to one or more variables.

Basic copy and paste operations are used to apply variable definition attributes. You can:

  • Copy a single attribute (for example, value labels) and paste it to the same attribute cell(s) for one or more variables.
  • Copy all attributes from one variable and paste them to one or more other variables.
  • Create multiple new variables with all the attributes of a copied variable.
