Load questionnaire definition dialog
Before you can load a questionnaire definition, it must already have been created in one of the questionnaire authoring tools.
When you load the questionnaire definition, you can specify the initial Look group, language, and version.
Look in
Selects the folder of the questionnaire definition file.
File name
Selects the questionnaire definition file (an .mdd file or a file that is compatible with the UNICOM Intelligence Data Model). You can type the name or select the file from the list.
If you try to load a questionnaire definition file that someone else is using, you will receive a message telling you that the file is unavailable.
Files of type
Displays either UNICOM Intelligence Metadata Document Files (*.mdd) or All Files (*.*) in the file list.
Look group
Selects the initial Look group to apply. UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper applies the default Looks in this group to the items in the questionnaire, unless you are loading a version of the questionnaire definition that has previously been loaded and formatted using the Looks in this Look group. Then, by default, UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper applies the Looks in this Look group that were applied previously. However, you can force UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper to apply the default Looks in this Look group by selecting Override Look specification in questionnaire (see Override Look specification in questionnaire).
Routing
Selects the routing context for the document if the questionnaire definition contains more than one.
Language
Selects the language for the document if the questionnaire definition contains more than one language. UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper automatically displays the questionnaire in the selected language, provided the texts are available in that language. UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper also sets the language of the Word document to the selected language. This means you can use the grammar and spelling check features in Word, provided that you have installed the required language dictionaries. However, remember that if you need to correct a spelling in a questionnaire item, you should make the changes to the questionnaire definition in the authoring or translation tool, and not in UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper.
Version
If there are multiple versions of the questionnaire definition, selects the version to use. A new version is generated when the questionnaire definition changes, for example with the addition of new questions or categories. If a new version is created after you load the questionnaire definition, you can update to the new version using the Update Document command.
UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper can record in the questionnaire definition the Look group you are using and the Looks that you apply to the questionnaire items only if you select an open version of the questionnaire definition. If you select the latest version and it is locked, you are given the choice of creating a new open version, of using the locked version in read-only mode, or of choosing a different version. If you select an older locked version, you have the choice only of using the locked version in read-only mode or of choosing a different version.
Context
Selects the document context (if the questionnaire definition contains more than one). The Question context is selected by default (for backwards compatibility reasons). UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper stores the Looks setting respectively for each contexts.
Override Look specification in questionnaire
When you apply Looks to a questionnaire, UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper records in the questionnaire definition the Look group you are using and the names of the latest Looks applied to each questionnaire item, provided you are using an open version. If you reload the same version of the questionnaire definition (for example, in another language) and use the same Look group for the initial Look group, UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper reads the names of the previously applied Looks from the questionnaire definition and formats the questionnaire items with these Looks. This saves you time in that you need apply the Looks only once. However, sometimes you might want to reload the file using the default Looks. Selecting this check box causes UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper to format the items using the default Looks in the initial Look group.
Ignore system variables
Select this option if you do not want the automatic serial number question to be included in the paper questionnaire. For further information about the implications of suppressing the serial number when you use UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper/Scan Add-on, see the UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper/Scan Add-on documentation.
Create new document
If you have just opened Word, deselect this option to load the questionnaire into the current Word document. If you have another document open in the current instance of Word, check this option to open the questionnaire in a new document, so that it is not added to your open document.
Create draft document
Select this option if you want to create a draft version of the paper questionnaire. This allows you to print a draft document so that it can be checked and annotated. You might want to select the options to include routing item descriptions and scripts to add more details to your draft document.
Include routing item descriptions
Select this option if you want to display the routing item descriptions in draft versions of the paper questionnaire. Each routing item has a description property that allows you to describe the function of that item. For example, a specific routing item description could describe why a person is routed to a different question when they answer the question “What is your age?” with “over 65”. This option should only be selected if you also select the Create draft document option.
Include routing item scripts
Select this option if you want to display the routing item scripts in draft versions of the paper questionnaire. This option should only be selected if you also select the Create draft document option.
Generate question number with prefix
Select this option if the questionnaire you are using does not contain question numbers (short name labels) and you want to add them, or if you want to replace existing question numbers with new ones. When you select this option, you can optionally specify a prefix for the question numbers by typing it into the prefix field. The questions are numbered in the order in which they appear in the paper routing in the .mdd file. Instruction text variables are not numbered. Question numbers added using this option are automatically saved in the .mdd file.
