Dear All

There is a string variable ‘hproblem’ containing diseases classification, which has codes from 1- 436.
I want to generate a variable ‘type’ which is ‘hproblem’ classified into two; 1 for group1 and 0 for group2.
The following codes of the variable ‘hproblem’ required to be included in group1
1-50, 53-103, 124-165, 167, 171, 175 -182, 188-200, 223-252, 257, 262-287, 313-336, 356-362
AND ALL THE REST in group two.
Is there a simple way to generate variable ‘type’?
Kind Regards,
