Variable Preview pane
The Variable Preview pane provides you with a summary of the information that is available in a variable, without the need to add it to a table.
To display the Variable Preview pane, choose View > Variable Preview from the menu, or press Alt+9.
You can display variable previews for the following types of variable:
categorical variables (displayed in a chart or table)
numeric variables (displayed in a table)
text variables (displayed in a table)
categorical grid variables (displayed in a table).
You can generate previews for selected variables or for all variables.
Displaying variable previews
The variable preview is displayed on request for variables that you select. Once you have requested a preview for a variable, it is available in subsequent sessions of UNICOM Intelligence Reporter.
If the data in your survey data file changes, the preview is not updated.
