That is strange.  Copying and pasting certainly works for me.  You
need to create an empty variable before you can add data to it.  Did
you do that?  Under what platform are you running PSPP?

If you just want to copy all the data from one variable into another,
one way to do it is with the compute command.  Given a variable X, you
can run a syntax like 


This will create a new variable Y (if it doesn't already exist) and
will then copy the values from X into it.  You can do this
interactively in the GUI from the Transform->Compute menu.

Hope this helps,
