Dear Nick,

my idea was to attach the labels in -legend- only (I did not attach value labels to the variable values themselves), but I should probably attach value labels to the variable first and then get the correct legends right away. That does work.

Thanks again, Sascha

I am not clear where you want these legend
labels to come from. -separate- picks up
the value labels of each variable;
don't they end in the legend?
