It is possible to create multiple varied copies of a variable by dropping or selecting multiple columns or values onto a component of a variable that is not a folder, Text literal or Text Parameter. For the options available when dropping values onto these targets, see Applying Column Values.
- Replicate Variable for each column/value
- Precede Variable name with column/value
- Append column/value to Variable name
- Append counter to Variable name
Before replicating a variable, a check is made to see if the maximum number of operations that can be undone by selecting the Undo button will be exceeded. If so, a warning is given to the effect that only the last so many operations can be undone. If the replication is undone, the original variable with the last value replicated in place of the original target value remains, possibly along with some number of replicated variables.
