     Sorry if I wasn't clear. I need to define different values that
     Variables can reach (column "Values" in Variables view). I have hundreds
     of variables and their characteristics (particularly these values) are
     repetitive. If a specific command can help with that please point me to

You're talking about the value labels.  

There's no facility to copy/paste them.  Even if there was, I would recommend
avoiding it for all but the simplest operations. Cut and Paste leads to cut and
paste errors which often go unnoticed.

If you want to add the same value labels to 100 variables, you can do it with a 
command like:

 ADD VALUE LABELS v1 to v100   1 'One'   2 'Two'   3 'Three'

See the manual entry for details.
