SPSS - Change Variable View with Syntax

Properties of variables and values such as names, formats and labels are collectively referred to as the dictionary in SPSS. Most of the dictionary is seen under variable view but -trust me on this one- you don't want to edit anything here manually or by copy-pasting.
Instead, manage your dictionary by syntax -it's way faster, easier and safer. The tutorials below quickly guide you through.
