  1. In the Variables and Questions tab select the variable(s).
  2. Click your right mouse button and select Copy and Paste Variable(s), selecting either Linked or Exact Copy (if you are not sure of the distinction, you should select Exact Copy).
  3. Set the Question Type to either Number or Number - Multi (if it is not already set to this).
  4. Then recode the values.
  5. Select the new question in the Blue Drop-down menu (a short-cut to doing this is to double-click on the row numbers of the relevant variable(s) in the Variables and Questions tab, which will cause the question to replace whatever is currently selected in the Blue Drop-down menu).
