Match values of factor by

How to match the values of old factors. If Labels is selected and the levels of the selected factors are compatible (that is, if each label corresponds to the same level in all the selected factors) then the level definitions are copied to the new factor; otherwise default levels 1,2,…,etc. are generated and a warning is printed. If Levels is selected the labels are retained if they are compatible, otherwise they are discarded and no warning is given. If Ordinals is selected the levels of all the factors are taken as ordinal values 1,2,…,etc. and no labels are defined. If Renumbered is selected then it is assumed that selected factors all have independent sets of levels and renumbers these uniquely such that the new factor will have a different level for every level of the selected input factors.

Save grouping
