Hi Nick!
-encode- didn't work properly, but the -replace- solution did.
Thanks a lot!!

Not so far as I know. You could -encode-
your string variable, then apply -recode-.
Otherwise it is a matter of a series

I would like to recode a string variable. However, -recode- accepts numeric values only. Is there a similar command for string variables?
