Export data file in TXT format

Compatibility: IdSurvey 6 IdSurvey 7

With IdSurvey you can export all collected data in different formats in the Export Results section of the survey menu. In this article we’ll focus on TXT format. Txt format (with fixed size columns) can be used in several data analysis software.

By default the system exports all results of all interviews made for that survey.
By clicking on Filter by Date in the “Setting” box on left, you can filter data to export according to a specific time frame, selecting days in the “From” – “To” fields.
Only those interviews included in the time frame will be exported (only for exportation in SPSS, CSV, TXT. The ACCESS exportation includes all data).
By clicking on Contact fields, you will choose which contact fields (among those uploaded in the contact database) you’ll export in the data file. These fields will be the first column of the exported file. To quickly select or deselect all contact fields, just click on the round button under the list, bottom right.

To save the chosen columns for future exports click on “Save export field” and the system will record the action.



In the TXT box select the type of interviews to export (complete or incomplete). Click on “Export” and wait for the exportation to be concluded then click on “Close”. In “Export history” you’ll see the list of all exports done.
