Viewing raw data

The underlying data of any question can be viewed by:

  • Pressing the Data tab located on the bottom left of the screen.
  • Pressing the RightArrow.png located to the right of a variable in the Variables and Questions tab.

Editing the raw data

There are two basic approaches to editing the raw data:

Exporting the data file with the modifications in it

When you "edit" the raw data, you are not actually changing the underlying data file. Q never edits a raw data file. Any and all modifications are contained within the Project Files, which means that all changes can be undone, there is a complete audit trail of all work, and you can import revised data files and have all the work automatically update.

However, if you export the data, all the manual changes will be applied in the exported data file.
