Importing Questions into a Question Table in Remark Web Survey

Remark Web Survey allows you to import a question from another area of the form into the question table. You can import a copy of the question or move the question from its original position to the question table. You have the choice of overwriting an existing question or importing the existing question as a new question in the table.
Note: only questions that share the selected answer scale can be used with this feature.

To import questions into a question table:

  1. Insert a question table or double click the table node that you wish to modify in the tree view. Tables are represented by the syntaxQuestion Table (5) in the tree view, where the number in parentheses is the number of question rows in the table. Use the Question Table Properties window to make modifications.
  2. Determine whether you want to overwrite an existing question or insert a question into the table as a new question. To modify an existing question, click the Edit link within the corresponding answer column. You will notice an option called Import. To add a question to the table, click Insert Row to insert a placeholder for the question you will import and then click the Edit link in the corresponding answer column. In either case, then choose Import from the Edit menu to import a question into the table.
  3. Select a question from the drop-down list titled Question to import. Note that only questions with the selected answer scale (listed in the Import requirements section of this window) will be visible in the drop-down list.
  4. If you would like to import a copy of the question and leave the question in its original position, mark the checkbox for Import a copy of the selected question.
  5. Click the Import button.
  6. If you are not importing a copy of the question, a prompt will appear confirming that you want to import the question and remove it from its original position. Click Yes to import the question or click No to return to the Question Table Properties window.
  7. If you click Yes in stepĀ 6 or are importing a copy of the question, a prompt will appear asking if you wish to overwrite the question text of the selected question. You have three options:
    Click Yes to overwrite the existing question text in the table with that of the question you are importing.
    Click No to keep the question text that is already in the question table, but still import the question (even though your answer items are the same as the existing question, any other attributes will be imported).
    Click Cancel to cancel the import and return to the Question Table Properties window.
  8. Click the OK button to complete the import and close the Question Table Properties window.
