Hi List Members. I am having trouble understanding the syntax for MATCHING files as shown in the manual. I'll make this simple because I think I just need the basics--no renaming, or dropped variables. Let's say I want to match data set ONE.sav and data set TWO.sav, by the variable PATIENT_ID. All variables are numeric. How would I do this? Please use the actual data set names (i.e., ONE.sav and TWO.sav) to make this as concrete as possible.
One.sav variables = PATIENT_ID, Condition, Period.
Two.sav variables = PATIENT_ID, TestScore1, Testscore2
Thank you very much for your help!
