I have never used visual binning, but I think you want to do something like this:

* assume height is in cm.
recode height (lo thru 150=1) (151 thru 180=2) (181 thru hi=3) into height_group.

Hello, I'm really new in using PSPP and for that reason I want to excuse myself if some of my questions seem to be stupid.
I want to show my students how they could collapse height-variables into groups. I know how to do this in SPSS by using "Visual Binning" in "Transformation" but I would like to show them to do most data analysis in PSPP. Is there a tool in PSPP too?

Kind regards,
