    How do I extract the data from these files?

    Asked by AdamBaudelaire on November 25, 2012 at 05:17 AM

    I'm taking a before and after survey of students doing my new program. I ask them the same set of fifteen questions on two identical forms, before and after. I want to be able to graph the data against itself perhaps with the two sets being a different colour, to show progress.

    How do I do this?


    Thanks in advance :)

    Hello Adam.  I don't think it would be possible to put into one graph the two separate form results, however you can download the CSV or Excel data of your form, then put them in to one Excel file on separate sheets and you can take advantage of MS Excel's chart tool.

    You can check on this user guide on how to download your Excel or CSV data: www.jotform.com/help/44-How-to-Export-Form-Data-to-Excel

    Please let us know if you have further questions.
