To manually combine selected fields in a data set:

  1. Select the questions you want to report on as described above.
  2. Check the box next to them in the "Selected Fields" list on the right side of the screen.
  3. Click the box to Combine/Rename Fields
  4. When you combine the fields, you need to give the new "combined" field a new name. If you are combining responses, you need to define a separator character (i.e. a semi-colon [;]or a bar [|] or a space). Once you have provided the combined field name and separator character, click the OK button. In this scenario there will only be one response per cell.
  • One use case would be to combine the field Applicant First Name and the field Applicant Last Name into 1 new field named "Applicant Full Name" with a space as the separator character.
