Block paste special

You can rename whole sets of entries and update definitions simultaneously. Users find this useful for product tests where they repeat lots of entries for each product.

Block update of responses

You can use this menu item to update a lot of entries at the same time:

Supplemental reject responses

You can add to, or remove, Supplemental reject responses from all the selected entries.

You can set the response text for added reject responses and you can choose to also set the “Suppress if empty” option.


This can be used to add or remove the “Refuse input” setting from all responses that have no allocated text in the selected entries.

Score values

For all similar selected entries, you can add score values to the responses. This is useful for banks of rating scales which have the same response lists.

Summary rows

This can be used to add summary rows to a block of variables simultaneously.  It is especially useful for adding top two, bottom two and similar rows to rating scales.

Applied filters block update

This is used to add or remove the same filter(s) from many entries simultaneously.

Raw CSV file extract

You can obtain part of the data from a CSV file. The extracted data can then be saved to another file, copied to the clipboard, or further extractions can be made.

You can:

  • Choose to extract only rows that contain a certain value in a particular column
  • Sort the rows on a particular column
  • Exclude all columns that begin with a certain character or string of characters
  • Select one or more individual columns to extract
  • Remove all duplicate rows from the extracted data

Raw data file repair and add serial

You can edit raw data files as follows:

  • Change faulty serial numbers
  • Change duplicate serial numbers
  • Allocate new serial numbers
