Hi,
Question:
How can a convert a continuous variable within my
dataset, into categories?
e.g. My variable 0_RC has the following values:
30,31,37,29,38
I would like to convert 0_RC into a categorical
variable with the categories: 
25-30: if value is between 25 and 30
30-35: if value is between 30 and 35
35-40: if value is between 35 and 40
Thank you,
Nitin
