Sometimes there are multiple separate text variables that need to be used when back coding. In such situations, there is a need to combine them into a Text Variable.
- Fill in the Name and Label fields as appropriate.
- In the Expression field, type an expression such as the following, where v1, v2 and v3 are three variable names (you will need to replace these with your own variable names and modify to the number of variables that you have):
v1 + ": " + v2 + ": " + v3
- Do the back coding in the normal way (see How to Back Code Other Specify Responses).
