Hi Eric, One more detail on this same issue addressed above. If I want to refine the analysis even more, and add one more level of analysis as follows - Row - is the additional detail: QuestionID.......Condition......Row.......Answer 1..........................1...............1............Y 1..........................1...............2............Y 1..........................1...............3............N 1..........................1...............4............N 1..........................1...............5............N 1..........................2...............1............Y 1..........................2...............2............N 1..........................2...............3............N 1..........................2...............4............N I would like to have the precise detail of number and % of Y answers given the QuestionID and Feedback. I tried to modify the code as follows: ****************************************************** cap rm "testQIDrow.xls" levelsof questionid, loc(q) foreach n in `q' { tabout feedback row choice /// if questionid == `n' /// using "testQIDrow.xls", append /// c(freq row) h1(Question `n' ) } levelsof feedback, loc(c) foreach v in `c' { loc j `" `j' `v' "- feedback `v'" "' } lab def jj `j', modify lab val feedback jj ta feedback levelsof row, loc(d) foreach r in `d' { loc i `" `i' `r' ' } lab def ii `i', modify lab val row ii ta row ****************************************************************** This code does return a tabulation for Row, but not per each category of feedback. How shall the code be modify to suit Row nested into feedback? Hope I am clear enough. Thanks a lot.
