The description is a little hazy, but he tools in data -> labels -> label values should be sufficient. First turn the string var and the numeric codes into a -value label-. -encode- might also be helpful for this exercise. Then -label save- the -value labels- and run the do file on the first dataset.

Subject: st: value labels from another dataset

Dear all,
my apologies if this has been already covered. I will appreciate its address if so.
I have a large dataset with numeric codes for a geographical division. In another dataset I have the same codes and a string variable with the name for each geographical division. Is there a way of using the name of the division from the second dataset in the first dataset?.

Thank you very much in advance
