How to change the names of the reporting variables (headers) in Excel export?


Dear all,

I’m having a hard time changing the variable names of the questions in one of my surveys.

In the question type Radio Button, for example, I have the option “Other” (With Required Write-in). The variable that appears once exported to Excel is “Other:Question1”.

Now, I want to change “Other:A_Q1_SchoolName” to “A_Q1_Other” for more readable variable and analysis.

Is there anyway I can achieve that?

Thank you very much in advance.

    I think the Question Alias feature is what you are looking for:

    There is a section in this article that addresses question aliases within exports:

    I hope this helps!
