With paper questionnaires you have the option to either publish or print the questionnaire. If you choose to print directly, rather than publishing first, the questionnaire is available for further changes. However, if you publish the questionnaire you will receive a warning that the questionnaire has been locked, although it will allow you to make changes should you wish to. As publishing the questionnaire is a crucial way of ensuring that questionnaires for scanning and use on the internet are not changed once they are finalised for printing or respondents’ use, it is good practice to get into the habit of publishing questionnaires once they are finalised, even if you only have paper versions.

Publishing and printing your paper questionnaire

Publishing a paper questionnaire means printing it. You print it from the Questionnaire window. If you have data in your questionnaire, the data will also be printed if you are in Counts or Case Data view. Empty questionnaires will be printed in Design view.

You can click the Print Preview button PrintPreviewIcon.png , select File|Publish or press Ctrl+Shift+W

The Printing Options dialog appears. It has a Publish button if you have selected File|Publish, and a Print button if you have gone through Print previewPrintPreviewIcon.png .
