Why does the option to open from Data Collection not appear in the File menu?

Technote (FAQ)


I have Data Collection native data that I want to analyze in Statistics, but the menu option to open the Data Collection data is missing. How do I get that enabled?


In order to open Data Collection data, you must have Data Collection installed on the same machine. Any of the desktop products will work, or you can install the Data Collection Survey Reporter Developer's Kit to get the basic features needed.

Also note that you must match the 64 or 32-bit of Statistics to the installed Data Collection product, as 32-bit is not compatible with 64-bit, and vice-versa.
