Dear Janet,
Thanks for the reply.
I am actually following the calendar data tutorial. The challenge is the codes in the calendar data to not match those in the questionnaires. When I substring the "vcal_1 and vcal_2" to get the method and reasons codes respectively below is what I get,

The methods and reasons codes in 2011 dataset are;
Method: 012356789BCLMNPTW ('4' is missing)
Reason: 12346789ACDFKW ('5' is missing

The methods and reasons codes in 2016 dataset are;
Method: 012356789BCELMNPSTW ('4' is missing)
Reason: 12346789?ACDFKW ('5' is missing and ? is a code)

When you compare these codes with what in the questionnaire (see list below) they do not much.
