yeah its not a statistic but i think its really helpful if you make a survey with text fields you want see what the people answered there... and in the html version you can see the output...

hmmm maybe a developer of limesurvey can give me a good hint how i can easy implement it.

its not easy to understand the complete excel process in the statistic_function.php

Well, I'd consider it is a nice to have, but I wouldn't consider this vital, because you can export those open-ended answers at the export. There are other functions that I'd consider a lot more urgent to be implemented.

So the statistics section is basically a quick and dirty statistical sum up of the survey, but when you want all the results including answers to open-ended questions you will have to go to the export of the data.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

i think the code will not be very clean... there will be a quick & dirty solution. But i looked at your link. And i want to make a Powerpoint Export in the Future with PHPPowerpoint. I will share the solution for Powerpoint definitely.

An example of where a unified export would be useful.

We set up a survey for a doctor's practice. They have to consult with patients more now as part of their funding rules in the UK. Most of the questions are multiple choice type, but at the end they want patients to be able to add any further comments about the services provided by the practice. The practice needs to show that they have collated and acted upon the answers given.

Currently, they need to export the statistics as a PDF to get the percentages of people who chose different answers. Then they need to switch to the export screen, choose the right long free text field from the list on the right (not straightforward as the system gives them all very long names like 93558X16X509F7) and export this as a seperate file.

It would be great if there was a 'smart export' function that gave stats where appropriate and free text answers in a list, all in one document.
