User12,  Would you be able to give me a bit more information?  Are you wanting to group the 40 variables into 8 groups of 5 or are you wanting to create 5 categories within each of the categorical variables? If it is the former, what do you need to do with the newly created groups? Thank you.

Hi.

 

Can you be more specific? If you are trying to group categorties together that is not possible in VA.However if there is a category which has different data vaules you can create a custom category to edit and manipulate those data values however you want.
