Include system variables in export
To export system variables, check this box, and choose from:
Common system variables. System variables contain general information about the questionnaire as a whole rather than data related to an individual question and, as such, they might be of little use for analysis purposes. However, rather than forcing you to choose between exporting all or no system variables, Export Data offers a third option of exporting only the more commonly used system variables.
All system variables.
Export special data elements (e.g., Base, Net)
When selected, special data elements are also exported. See “Special elements” in the Data Collection Developer Library for more information about special elements.
Variable edits
These options allow you to select which variables should be exported for the axis variable.
Export edited definition. Exports only the edited, derived axis variable definition name.
Export original definition. Exports only the original variable definition name.
Export original and edited definitions. Exports both the original variable definition and the edited, derived axis variable definition names.
