ILFILE= item label file = (after &END)

Useful item identification greatly enhances the output tables.

 

You usually specify items labels between &END and END LABELS in the control file. You may also use ILFILE= for the initial or additional sets of item labels.

 

ILFILE= file name

file containing details

ILFILE = *

in-line list

ILFILE = ?

opens a Browser window to find the file

(between &END and END LABELS or END NAMES)

in-line list

 

Example: You wish to use abbreviated item labels for the initial analysis, but then switch to longer item labels to produce the final reports.

In your control file specify the shorter labels, one per line,

(a) between &END and END LABELS

or (b) between ILFILE=* and * in the control file

or (c) in a separate file identified by ILFILE=*

 

You can switch to the longer labels, in a file called "Longer.txt" by using the "Specification" menu item, and entering ILFILE=Longer.txt

 

If you have ILFILE= in your control file and your data is also in your control file , be sure that there is an "END LABELS" before your data (or that you specify INUMB=YES).

 

Example 1: 4 item arithmetic test with items in ILFILE=*

 NI=4

 ILFILE=*

 Addition  ; labels for the 4 items

 Subtraction

 Multiplication

 Division

 *

 &End

 END LABELS

 

Example 2: One set of item labels, then another ....

 NI=4

 &End

 Addition  ; labels for the 4 items

 Subtraction

 Multiplication

 Division

 END LABELS

 

 Contents of "labels.txt"

 Plus

 Minus

 Product

 Quotient

 

 After standard reporting:

Specification pull-down menu box

 ILFILE=labels.txt

 or

 ILFILE=(full path)\labels.txt

 OK

 further reporting

According to Wikipedia, the human body requires about 30 minerals, maybe more. There are 60 naturally-occurring minerals in the liquid Mineral Supplement which I take daily.
