Hi all,

I've got a set of variables v6-v146, each one containing string values (unique values ~4500):

v6 v7 v8 v9 v10...
text1 text1 text3 text45 text1...
text5 text2 text1 text455 text1
.....

I want to count how many times each of the values appears in at least one of the v6-v146 in each row [observation], e.g. text1 appears at least once in 7365obs.

How can achieve this?


Nikos
