Hi Eric,

Thanks for the answer.

Condition is actually a categorical variable coded as (1, 2, 3).
Answer is string and there are 12 questions - questionIDs are
integers.  My data structure is the following:

QuestionID..............Condition................Answer
1..............................1.............................Y
1..............................1.............................N
1..............................1.............................N
1..............................2.............................Y
1..............................2.............................Y
1..............................2.............................N
2..............................1.............................Y
2..............................1.............................Y
2..............................1.............................N
2..............................2.............................Y
2..............................2.............................N
2..............................2.............................N


My table should look like:

.................................Answer...........................
................................Y..................N..........Total
Question1................
-Condition1..............nr(%).............nr(%).....nr(%)
-Condition2..............nr(%).............nr(%).....nr(%)
Question2
-Condition1..............nr(%).............nr(%).....nr(%)
-Condition2..............nr(%).............nr(%).....nr(%)

Thank you very much in advance.
Anisa
