Is it possible to export only "specify other" values through a DMS script? The select statement only selects the "specify others" category but nonetheless the base question is always included in the export.
By default when exporting a "specify others", the base question will always be included as the specify other is seen as a slice. It is possible to specify a different name in the SQL and then the export will only contain the "specify others". E.g. instead of using "SELECT Q1._4 from vdata", use "SELECT Q1._4 as Q1_4 from vdata". More information is available in the DDL topic called "Filtering Data in a DMS File".
