Get a codebook with questions texts and modalities

Post by jiofack » February 18th, 2021, 9:47 pm

Dear all,

What I want:
I want to get a documentation for my application with the questions texts (if possible with two languages) and the modalities (for a specified or the first value set if there is / or if there are many).
What for:
The idea is to use it for the control / test of the application (if the text is ok, if all the modalities are there and well formulated...). It will also help for further surveys to know how it has been done.
What I tried:
I try using the XML exportation but I could not exploit the file with my excel.

Please any idea how I can do it?

The XML metadata is not meant to be read by Excel. It is meant for people building their own tools that use XML. You can use the DDI export and then use a DDI editor like this one http://www.ihsn.org/software/ddi-metadata-editor or you can use the ExportXMLMetdata tool and export to HTML which you can view in a web browser.

Thank you.

I used the IHSN tool. I will see if I can customised the option to create a file with the elements I want only.
