Not so. As the thread flagged by Eric does clearly indicate,
characteristics may be used for this purpose; and you may -display- them
at any time in a session.

Eric,

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately this has not solved the
problem. I know "needing/wanting" more than 80 characters is not the
norm for a variable label, but I am looking to generate a printout
with the original questions and some basic frequency distributions. I
think I might be stuck using R for this but just wanted to put out a
second call.
