Meal Coding

#1
Hi all,

I am new to this forum posting. I am currently working on trying to code meals. At the moment I have subjects with seperate rows for each of the foods eaten. There is also a time beside each of these foods, so we know each meal 'sitting', or complete meal eaten. I am wondering is there a way on SPSS, or other programmes which might code combinations of foods eaten at the same time. Would string coding be an idea and can this be done with SPSS?

ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Thanks

Yes, I'd look into the string option. You could dummy code it also, with numerical combinations.I haven't used SPSS for some time so there may be new features that i am not aware of. But I would opt for strings.
