This happens regardless of the survey: If I download the survey as a Word document with most options checked (so I can see the logic, Question IDs, etc.), the download shows up in protected mode in MSWord, then when I select edit mode the document freezes up MSWord. I want to create a codebook with the recoded items showing (e.g., choices are yes = 1, no = 2, not sure = 3) and the ability to “clean up” the document so it looks nicer. Can you advise? Thanks!
Is there a way for you to try downloading on a different computer? This might help determine whether this is an issue isolated to your Word version or more of a general problem (I have not encountered the issue you described in any of my surveys).
As far as putting together the codebook, you might consider taking a look at the Survey Legend:
Excellent, thank you! I didn’t know about the survey legend tool – I’m new to SurveyGizmo.
