Qxd 2/14/2005 5:42 PM Page 51 Managing Data Files The respondent number has been entered in columns 1–2, the Academic Ability score has been entered in columns 4–5, Parent Education has been entered in columns 6–7, Student Motivation has been entered in column 9, Advisor Evaluation has been entered in column 10, Religious Affiliation has been entered in column 11, Gender has been entered in column 12, and Community Type has been entered in column 13. Notice that I have skipped columns 3 and 8. This was not necessary (and I could have chosen to skip different columns had I wished), but I elected to have these spaces in the dataset to make the data easier to look at.

This might be okay for this first analysis, but if you do several analyses with different data and different variables and you do not name and label your variables, you will soon be looking at several different outputs, all with the default variable names.
