if P3 is 'missing', then X3 should be set to 'missing', too.
- that will take IF statements in a Do repeat or a Loop.
Second try. guessing you might have said 'sysmis'
when you intended to say something about Labels...
Perhaps you want the Var-labels of X to set to use
the Labels of P. I think you can't "apply dictionary"
for this; you would want to re-use the original syntax
(assuming you had saved that somewhere).
