Include Miscodes and Unknown Response Codes
Check this box to count database errors and new response codes as a special category. This will show you if there are any response codes in the database that aren't defined in the form. Checking this option will also show unanswered questions as a special category.
Skip Categories With No Responses
If this is selected, categories which have never been used will be ignored. Of course, this will not apply to pie charts. If this is not selected, responses that nobody has ever selected will show up on your plots.
This sorts the responses according to percentage. For bar charts, higher percentages are on the left and lower percentages are on the right. For pie charts, larger slices start on the right and rotate counterclockwise.
Scale to 100%
When checked, the graph is drawn from 0-100%. When unchecked, it is drawn from 0% to the highest response percentage.
Units as Percentages
When checked, the vertical axis is labeled with percentages. When unchecked, it is labeled with the number of responses.
Axis lines will not be drawn if this box is unchecked.
For percentages, checking this box adds small ticks at 10% intervals along the axis. For responses, small ticks are added next to each response bar along the axis.
Checking this box will print the number of counts about each bar or next to each wedge. It has no effect of tables.
Checking this box will print the bar/wedge's percentage above it. For tables, it will print a second column of percentages.
Use the % Sign
If Percentages is checked, this option will print a percent sign after the percentage. It has no effect on tables.
Question Text as Title
When this option is checked, the question's text will be used as the title for that graph. If it is unchecked, the question's description will be used instead.
Treat '0' as 'No Answer'
Response codes of zero will appear in the chart as "Blank" responses, as if the respondent did not answer.
Draws the graph with a small amount of depth.
Checking this option puts a small amount of space between bars or pie wedges.
Vertical Bar Chart/Horizontal Bar Chart/Pie Chart/Table
Lets you select what type of graph to draw. The default graph is a pie chart.
This text will appear at the top of every page. You can make text bold, italic, or underlined by placing it between the following tags:
Bold - <b>
Italic - <i>
Underline - <u>
The title can only be one line. Any lines entered after a return will be ignored.
Unit Axis Label
This text will appear next to the units axis. The default is Percentage
This changes the font color.
This will allow you to add a new color to the list of colors. The first color will be used to draw the first bar/wedge, the second color for the second bar/wedge, and so on. If there are too many bars/wedges, the default color of blue will be used.
Added colors appear on the end of the list.
This will delete the currently selected color from the list. It will do nothing if nothing is selected.
Define will bring up the Colors box and let you redefine a selected color.
