New codes are NOT showing up in data view in SPSS

Hi, I have downloaded my survey into SPSS, and SPSS coded my variables for me, but I wanted to change them. I have recoded them, but the codes are not changing in the data view - so initially SPSS had coded a question as 23 = strongly agree, 24 = agree, etc. I recoded this to 1 = strongly agree, 2 = agree, etc. However, in data view, it is still showing 23, 24, and so on. Furthermore, when I click 'value labels' to change the coding into the written answers (so 23 turns into strongly agree in data view, 24 changes to agree ), it only works for some questions, and for the vast majority it doesn't at all, so I am left with 23, 24 etc. Does anyone know what is going on? Thanks!
