## Re: Sum variables

Hiya, do you have any other procedure for doing sum variables? eg WSS Sum(WSS1,WSS2,WSS3,WSS4).
The first recommended procedure seems not to work.
Thanks.

Hi, @GAS.
If you need to get a new variable with the sum of the case values (rows) for some variables of interest, go to compute variable and use the SUM () function as in the screenshot.

## Re: Sum variables

pro tip @GAS,

you'll probably find you get better mileage asking questions of the form:

"why doesn't this work? (with an example)", rather than saying "the procedure doesn't work"
