Hola,

Para resolverlo puedes usar el comando \"recode\". Los detalles los puedes ver en la ayuda.

Hello,
I have a dataset that has the following problem:

I suppose my dataset had some problem in a conversion from dbf to dat and now, some observations in one of my string variable have the next form:
...
BA¥OS
SA¥O
CA¥ARIS
HUA¥EC
...

but they should be:

...
BAÑOS
SAÑO
CAÑARIS
HUAÑEC
...

How could I change that single letter?
Thanks,
Max PUCP-IEP
