Creating a grid table

Many questionnaires contain groups of questions with an identical range of possible answers. These are generally attitude questions and the replies are typically “Very good” to “Very poor”, or “Strongly agree” to “Strongly disagree”. Such groups are called Grids. Each question is set up as a separate variable, but at the analysis stage, they are grouped together.

  1. Click AnalysisTblIcon.png to display the Analysis Definition dialog box.
  2. Type into the Analysis field Q6a TO Q6e.
  3. Select Grid table from the dropdown list in the Break field (or type GRID in upper or lower case). If you leave the Break field blank, Snap assumes that you want a grid table because of the value you put in the Analysis field, but this can be confusing.
