vice-versa, will delete the whole variable.

>       1. launch psppire
>       2. create 2 variables- var1 and var2
>       3. change variable type of var2 to "string"
>       4. enter some data under var1 and var2 (say, 1,2,3,4,5 etc)
>       5. now, again go to the variable view
>       6. change the variable type from "numeric" to "string" for var1
>       7. go to the data view
>       8. all entry under var1 is deleted
>       9. for var2, variable type could be changed from "string" to "numeric" 
> and
it will result in the same thing- loss of all data under var2.

**: Trying to remove a child that doesn't believe we're it's parent."
