I hadn't picked up that your variable was continuous. 

The original intent of -recode-, as I understand it, 
was to recode categorical variables, but you've 
realised that it can be applied to continuous variables
as well. 

If this alone were the problem, I would just use -ceil()- 
but you want a coarser division at higher ages.

-set trace on- and send a log of the trace to tech-support.
