In some situations the names of the questions that appear in the Blue and Brown Drop-down Menus are unhelpful. For example, they may not contain the question number. The best solution in this situation is generally to obtain a revised data file which has better names in it. The next best option is to tidy the names in Q by editing them in the Variables and Questions tab.

Another option is make Q display the variable names of the questions in the Blue and Brown Drop-down Menus. This is done as follows:

  • Select Edit and User Options.
  • In the How to display questions in lists options select either: Variable name(s) or Variable names: Question name.
  • Press OK.
