If you’ve created variables, changed variable settings, run analyses, created workspaces, or done just about anything in a dataset, you can save all of that as a “Template”:
Then, just before you next load in data of the same structure, you can select that template to be applied to the data:
The data must have the same columns as the data that the template was produced from.
- Created/cleaned/hidden variables
If your dataset started with a template applied, and then you made more changes and saved that as a template, your newly saved template would include all the changes made both by the original template and by your additions.
