Controlling the appearance of tables by changing the underlying data

Many of the most fundamental ways of controlling tables are done by changing the underlying data. When you change the appearance of a table by changing its underlying data, all other tables using the same data will also change. If this is not desirable, you can instead create multiple versions of the data by duplicating the data).

The main ways of manipulating the data to change the appearance of tables are:

  • Merging and moving rows and columns by dragging and dropping.
  • Create NETs by selecting categories, right-clicking and select Create NET.
  • Sorting.
  • Creating Banner questions, which are hybrids of multiple questions (e.g., age and gender, or gender within age).
  • Spans, which are sub-headings going across multiple categories.
  • Recoding numeric values and changing missing data settings in by right-clicking on rows/columns, selecting Values and modifying the Value Attributes.
  • Moving and Changing Rows and Columns by dragging and dropping.
  • Hiding rows and columns.
