Is it possible to add verbatim comments/text files to an existing levels database in Quanvert using data wizard?

Technote (troubleshooting)


Have separate ascii files that contain open-end responses and need to merge them into a levels files and it doesn't seem possible to be able to do that using the data wizard. Is there another way this can be accomplished?

Resolving the problem

Using the data wizard in Quanvert does not allow your to choose at which level to merge the verbatims text files.

Can use call lalpha statements in the Quantum run if the verbatims are already in the original data file. If you try to "tack-on" the verbatim text in the original data file, you risk losing the multipunch data that might be in the original record.
