how to use comments in a rating scale


Hello everybody, 


I have used a rating (likert scale) question with possibility of including comments to justify the answer. I would like to make some analysis in SPSS to correlated the comments with certain answers to other questions, bu unfortunately they are not available. I have only been able to identify them when dropping down on the button in the automated generated reports. They are not even available in the open text analysis where I could have analyzed them prior to including them in Spss data-base.

Does anyone know how to handle this?


Thanks a lot

    It looks like Comments are not compatible via the SPSS export option:

    One option that might serve as a good workaround is to export the raw data to CSV Excel:

    And then to use this documented solution for opening a CSV in SPSS:

    Hope this helps!
