Table scripting
UNICOM Intelligence Reporter includes components that enable you to create sophisticated survey and market research tables using a script. UNICOM Intelligence Reporter is compatible with UNICOM Intelligence Reporter - Survey Tabulation, so you can use UNICOM Intelligence Professional to set up tables in the form of a table document (.mtd) file, and then open the file in UNICOM Intelligence Reporter - Survey Tabulation for further analysis.
