Recode doesn't write into new column

after I summarized some tables, i want to recode the column "Source Table" into a new column with more specific strings. So I change the "New Values" in the recode window to my liking and choose "New Column".

A new column called "Source Table" gets created, but it is not filled with the strings i set in "New Values".

If i do the same with any other column, it works suddenly.


Can someone tell me, what i am doing wrong here?

Unfortunately, I'm not able to come up with an idea of what might be going on based on your description.


Can you provide some more details?


  • How did you summarize these tables?
  • Can you send a screen shot of your recode dialog?
  • Could you post a sample data table that demonstrates the problem? Be sure to remove or disguise any proprietary data before posting.
