Microsoft Word exports
Use this option to specify whether the export should create tables only, charts only, or both tables and charts, and whether the chart or the table should be shown first.
Charts are created using Microsoft Excel, so you need to have both Word and Excel installed to be able to use the chart options.
Default chart type
If you have chosen to export charts, select a chart type from the list. If you want to use a custom chart that you have created in Excel, type in the name of the custom chart.
The chart type you select is used only if you have not specified a chart type for a table using the Table Properties dialog on the View Tables tab.
Hide Word during export
Hides Word during the export. This makes the export run faster. However, this option is not recommended if you are using Word 2000, because it can lead to the export failing.
Launch Word after export
Opens Word, and the file that contains the exported tables.
You might need to set an access security setting in Word before you can run the export: see Enabling security access for Microsoft Excel, Word, and PowerPoint exports.
Apply Word template
Enter the name and location of a Word template to use, or click Browse to browse to the folder containing the template. Leave this box blank to use the default template. See Formatting the output in Microsoft Word for more information.
Save to file
Check this box and enter a name and location for the output file, or click Browse to browse to the folder where you want to save it. If you do not specify a save location, and Launch after export is also not selected, you are prompted to either launch the associated application or select a save location.

Display properties
Variable. Choose whether to use variable names or the more friendly descriptions for the variable texts in the tables.
Category. Choose whether to use category names or the more friendly descriptions for the row and column headings in the tables.
Table of Contents. Select this option if you want the export to create a table of contents. By default, the table of contents is generated from the text in the left header position. This works best when you display the table description (and nothing else) in the left header position. See Changing the headers and footers used in the table of contents for more information.
Borders. Select this option if you want the tables to have borders.
Headers and footers. Select this option if you want to export the headers and footers that have been defined for the table. When this option is selected, the headers and footers are positioned on the page above and below the table to which they relate.
Headers and footers are not positioned using the Word header and footer feature.
Variable and category images. Select this option if you want to export images associated with table rows and columns. These might be images that were specified when the data was created using UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Server Admin, or they might be images that were added to your tables using UNICOM Intelligence Professional Tables Option.
Chart properties
See Chart options
Page properties
Repeat heading rows
This option affects tables that are too long to fit on one page and need to be split across two or more pages. Select this option if you want the table column headings to be repeated on every page. Deselect this option if you want the column headings to appear on the first page only.
Insert page break after each table
Select this option if you want a page break to be inserted between the exported tables.
This option does not insert a page break between tables and charts.
