I am having trouble exporting a survey with a loop to SPSS. What can I do?

If you have problems exporting the survey with loops to SPSS due to the repetition of the labels (i.e. the names of the answer categories), we advise you to choose one of the options below:

  1. First export the data to Excel where you can change the labels. Then transfer the data to SPSS.
  2. Change the labels in the SPSS Syntax Editor.

Problems can arise if the loops include question types with more than one category. These are:

  • Categories - Multiple answer;
  • Tables (all types);
  • Constant sum;
  • Number with two input fields.
