Thanks again for your help Sergiy.  Using -codebook cwhiact1, tab(100)-
worked perfectly.

Try the following:

codebook cwfatal, tab(100)
 or
tabulate cwfatal

Option tab controls the willingness of codebook to show more values.
Default is 9.
Both commands might hit the limit at about 99. There were user-written
commands producing large tables.

Also there might be labels defined for values, that do not occur in
the data. My guess is that codebook will never include them at all.

Regards, Sergiy
