Using question templates

For details about these templates, see Using a question template. You can also apply a custom question template you created.
1 Select the question you want to apply the template to. Supported question types for question templates are Single Response, Multiple Response, True or False, Numeric, Text, Date/Time, and Display Text.
2 If the Properties pane is not showing, display it.
The Question options are displayed in the Properties pane.
3 Click the ... button beside the Question Template field.

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\IBM\SPSS\DataCollection\7\Author\Library\Templates
or under ProgramData, for example:
5 Select Calendar.htm, Slider.htm, or a custom template file that you created, and then click Open.
