File Menu - Other Menu Commands

Save Survey
This selection saves the active Survey Power question file. The survey question and data files must remain in the same folder. They can be in a different folder from the program and help files, but the question and related data files must be located in the same folder.

Save As ...
This selection allows you to make a duplicate copy of the question and choice text. This makes it easy to use the same question to compare surveys taken at different times, for example, year to year changes.

No files are deleted when you use "Save As" and use a new filename. Assume you have a question and database file in memory. If you select "Save As" from the file menu, and select a new filename or location, the question file will be saved with the new name or location., and the previous question and data files will be cleared from memory (not deleted from the hard disk). When you return to the opening screen, you can either load the original question file (with data) or the new question file (without data).

You would also create a duplicate copy of the questions when survey results need to be merged. The data files would be merged in this new folder using the Utility Menu Merge data Files menu selection.

Close Survey
This selection removes all survey questions and choices, responses, and survey analyses from the computer's memory. All survey files are closed.

Printer SetUp
This selection presents the standard Windows Printer SetUp dialog. You can select a new printer, or change your default printer. 

Exit Program
This selection is used to leave the program.
