Combining variable data

#1
I am working on a nursing biostats assignment and I am stuck on the how to combine multiple responses into SPSS for a one-way ANOVA? I get eight variables listed from the data but want to combine those into three categories (1 positive response, 2 positive responses, and 3 or more positive responses). I have attached a screen shot. TIA!

If you have eight variables (columns), then you cand use COUNT in order to count the number of positive responses for each participant.
You can RECODE the new variable into three categories then.

With kind regards
