educational attainment [EDUC] categories

I see that the questionnaire text was asked the way I'm interested in:

NURSERY OR PRESCHOOL THROUGH GRADE 12

[ ] Nursery school
[ ] Kindergarten
[ ] Grade 1 through 11 -- Specify grade 1-11 --> [ ][ ]
[ ] 12th grade -- NO DIPLOMA

HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATE

[ ] Regular high school diploma
[ ] GED or alternative credential COLLEGE OR SOME COLLEGE
[ ] Some college credit, but less than 1 year of college credit
[ ] 1 or more years of college credit, no degree
[ ] Associate's degree (for example: AA, AS)
[ ] Bachelor's degree (for example: BA, BS)

AFTER BACHELOR'S DEGREE

[ ] Master's degree (for example: MA, MS, MEng, MEd, MSW, MBA)
[ ] Professional degree beyond a bachelor's degree (for example: MD, DDS, DVM, LLB, JD)
[ ] Doctorate degree (for example: PhD, EdD)

But the variable is then coded as follows:

N/A or no schooling

Nursery school to grade 4

Grade 5, 6, 7, or 8

Grade 9

Grade 10

Grade 11

Grade 12

1 year of college

2 years of college

4 years of college

5+ years of college

I'm guessing this was done for harmonization purposes. Is there a way to get the original, unharmonized EDUC variable, which contains the categories I'm interested in?

Thanks so much.
