Hello, does anyone have any ideas on how to achieve the following?

I am trying to produce statistics, on a question by question basis, based on:
ONLY THE RESPONSES OF THOSE WHO ACTUALLY ANSWERED THE QUESTIONS, ie.
EXCLUDING THOSE WHO WERE EITHER "NOT COMPLETED/DISPLAYED"AND ALSO THOSE WHO ARE "NO ANSWER".

Limesurvey seems to allow you to exclude the first group (the not completed or not displayed) but not the second.

Any suggestions very much appreciated,
thanks,
A

This isn't possible. Data can only be filtered by not completed or not displayed. Checking for the "no answer" option is not implemented.
Advanced data analysis tools like SPSS should provide such features.

Thanks very much for your reply. I feared that might be the answer alright...
And do you think there's some other way, without going into SPSS, of e.g. exporting the data into Excel / csv, changing all the 'Not Completed or Not Displayed' values into 'No Answer's, and importing back into Limesurvey again?
Thanks,
A

You'd have to try that out, I have never worked on such an issue.
