A very basic question I would appreciate help with...

if I have a numeric variable that has a value label assigned to it.
For example a binary variable (0/1) where 0 has value label "no" and 1 
has value label "yes"
How can I convert this to a string variable that will be populated with 
"yes" and "no"?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The command to do that is called -decode-.
