Part 3 of Creating Tables in Q (Video)

Basic Tables is a tool for generating batches of crosstabs and SUMMARY tables. To use Basic Tables, select Create > Tables > Basic Tables. Generates a folder for each Key question, which will contain:

A summary view of the Key question, if it is not text.
A RAW DATA view of the Key question, if it is text.
Crosstabs of the Key question with every Profiling question.

Available questions The list of all non-Hidden questions in your projects.  Any of these may be used as a Key or Profiling question.

Key questions The list of Key questions.  A folder will be created for each of these and each will be compared against every Profiling question.

Profiling questions The list of Profiling questions. All of these questions will be compared against each Key question.

Add a folder for each Key question's crosstabs When ticked, the crosstabs of each Key question by each Profiling question will be organised into separate folders in the Report tree - one for each Key question. When un-ticked, the crosstabs will be organised into a single folder in the Report tree.

Where should the Key question SUMMARY tables be added?

At the top of each Key question's folder. Every Key question will have its own folder with a crosstab against every Profiling question, and the SUMMARY table will be output at the top of the folder.
All together in a folder at the beginning. All the Key question SUMMARY tables will be combined into their own folder at the beginning of the output.
Nowhere (don't generate SUMMARY tables). No SUMMARY tables will be generated - you should ensure you have selected Profiling questions otherwise there will be nothing to show as output.

Filter drop-down The filter variable to apply to all generated tables.

Weight drop-down The weight variable to apply to all generated tables.

Setting the Statistics in a report

If you wish the tables to contain non-default statistics, select the tables in the report and then select the desired options. For example, a table of last brand consumed by age group will, by default, only show column percentages; if you wish your table to show percentages and counts you would check each of n, Row % and Column %.
