Transforming Data - New Values for Multiple Variables

#1
I am new to SPSS, and plagued by the concern that it is applying the new values (set up, of course, separately and unique to each variable) in error across the board to both variables in question (I'm only looking at two right now).

Even if only one variable is selected, or in the "Numeric Variable-->Output Variable" field of "Recode into Different Variables", all new values for both variables appear in the "Old-->New" field.

Is this a valid concern? Is there a way to be assured that even though new values for multiple variables are showing up in the old-->new field when only one variable is selected/highlighted, that only the values as assigned to a variable are being applied?

Apologies if I am not describing this well. Very appreciative of any feedback.
