Hi,

I am trying to tabulate certain conditions related to the chest (read_trm), gathered from medical records, against whether or not a person describes themselves as having a chest condition (yes/no). I have included my code and a small amount of the table below (the -if- statement is there to chose only those conditions defined as being chest related). My problem is that the names of the conditions are being truncated and so I cannot tell what all of them say.
I notice that if I tabulate only the condition (read_trm) and do not include the second variable (i.e. a one-way table), I get more characters in the table but it is still truncated. I think this is to do with space in the results window, but is there any way that I can change this so that I can read all of the entries under 'Read term'?

Thanks in anticipation,
Sara
