Hello, 
I am working with two different files, containing labour force status.
In the first one the status is coded as follows:
Looking after family: 5
FT Education: 6
Long term sick: 7
Maternity leave: 8

In the second one it is:

Maternity leave:5
Looking after family: 6
FT education: 7
Long Term sick: 8

So, if I try to append the first one under the second one, people looking after 
family are recorded as maternity leave, people in FT education are recorded as 
looking after family and so on...

How can I change the code of the labour force status in one of the two files?

Thank you very much,

Silvia
