New Knowledge Base articles!

We’ve been adding a host of new articles and survey resources to our Help Centre; here are some of the most noteworthy of them:

Quota Monitoring for Analyse & Vista

This article shows the use of the Read quota function in a Closed by scripts created variable. We combine this function with table arithmetic scripts to create a portfolio that will allow you to monitor the progress of your quotas as new data is collected. The examples are shown in Analyse and Vista 6.

This simple yet complete solution only requires you use the latest version of AskiaVista (6.0.3.8) and Analyse (5.3.5.2) and higher; of course, you’ll also need a survey with at least one quota question with some data!

Basically, the idea is to create a new tab definition which has the structure required and then do a lookup of the values from the original table(s) into this new table (by using the GetTable method). The original tables are broken by edge response to produce 7 tables:
