Exporting tracking data
I am experiencing a problem when exporting data to SPSS and/or ASCII:
Tracking studies are projects that run periodically, there are minor changes made to the project/script after each month. After a typical export to SPSS or ASCII the data will now need to be analysed, I use a map file to export the data to ASCII. My problem arises when I need to add a question to the survey that is the middle of the script, when I now do the export to ASCII all the data positions change/shift after the question that I added. Is there any way that I can maintain the original column positions? Hence the only change to the map would be the new question added and all else remain unchanged.
