Dear listers
There must be an easier way of doing this, please help

I am looking survey data and in this particular section, respondents have
given reasons for saving. I allow for upto four reasons and as such have
four variables (other1c other2c other3c other4c). Having coded all the
responses, I have upto 22 reasons and I would now like to flash out
illegal entries (exceed the codebook limits). I have a crude syntax (which
lists values greater than the codebook limit of 22 but are not missing)

list houscode other1c other2c other3c other4c if (other1c >22 &   /*
*/ other1c ~=.)|(other2c >22 & other2c ~=.)|(other3c > 22 & other3c /*	
*/ ~=.) |(other4c > 22 & other4c ~=.)

Is there an easier (more elegant or less repetitive) way of doing this 

Roni
