Thanks Sergiy,
But that doesn't exactly do what I want.  I would like to see the
codebook with labels so that it shows the frequency of occurrence for
each category along with its label.  For example, the way it does when I
use codebook on -cwfatal1- below.  I think the problem is that the
variable cwhiact1 has more categories than codebook wishes to show.  But
I would like to see them all, not just an example.
David

.codebook  cwfatal1

                  type:  numeric (byte)
