Not quite sure what the problem is ("relate"?) BTW, I just noticed that you
entered "capscore" into the brackets after runiform(). Maybe that frustrated
your earlier attempts. These brackets are not meant to pass anything to the
function, just leave them empty...

Perfect...with uniform....
But I still have a problem: I created a normalized variable from 0 to 1
(with the suggested commands) but I could not relate it with the variable
I was interested in.
I mean, I should work with variable's values from 1 to 8 and generate a
new normalized variable from o to 1.
Thanks again
