Snap creates three reports for you automatically.

  • The Questionnaire report generates a top-line summary report showing the counts and percentages of responses in the questionnaire layout.
  • The Summary report generates a chart, table or list for every question
  • The Summary Tables report tabulates responses to all questions.

You can find these in the Reports window.

  4. Specify a Filter to restrict the data used in the report.
  5. In the N/A box enter a logical expression that refers to a table cell or context value and for which the report is not applicable. You can use this to test if an analysis is empty.
