Select variable for case identification

Command:Tools
Next selectSelect variable for case identification

Description

In this dialog box you can select a variable that can be used by the program to identify cases, e.g. when you click on a marker in a graph.

Select variable for case identification

Note that you can enter a combination of variables in the dialog box, using spreadsheet functions. E.g. if the spreadsheet contains a column with header "NAME" and a column with header "FIRST_NAME", you can enter the following formula for case identification:

CONCAT(FIRST_NAME," ",NAME)

The Variable editor is a useful tool to compose such a formula (click the Formula editor button).

If no variable for case identification is selected, the program will use the spreadsheet row numbers to identify cases.
