A scanned image data report is a quick and easy way to view handwritten replies, without the need to wait for scanned questionnaires to be detected and keyed.

Note: To view a scanned image data report, you must have retained the image files created by the scanning process. Also, the ‘Scanning’ check box must be selected in ‘Data Entry Tailoring’.

Step By Step

Step 1

Open the Data Window by clicking on DataEntry.

Step 2

Click on Print to access the Print Data dialog (Note: if you do not see this dialog, make sure ‘Scanning‘ is ticked in Data entry tailoring).


Step 3

Enter a title, if required. You can also filter results, and specify exactly which variables to include in the report by typing variable names in the ‘Content’ field.

You can only use a variable as a filter if the data is stored, e.g. if you have not keyed in a Literal Response question and it only exists as an image in Snap. It is not possible to filter a variable which has not been interpreted successfully.

Step 4

Select Scanned Questionnaire in the Style section and any other options you may require:

  • Show Boxes Only: no question text is included in the report
  • Remove Blank Space: reduces any space around an answer image
  • Show Case Number: the case number is displayed on the report
  • Two Columns: the replies are displayed in two columns

Step 6

Click on OK and a list containing the images for that variable will be printed out.
