Hey, im currently working on an experiment consisting of multiple <survey> elements. I know that Inquisit automatically saves the data from <survey> elements in different data files, but i was wondering if there was a way to get it all in one file without merging the data files afterwards.

Thanks in advance for all answers!

The only option to do that is to run your surveypages via a regular <block> (a <surveypage> is a special type of <trial>). I.e.,

Instead of

<expt>
/ blocks = [1=somesurvey; ...]
</expt>

<survey somesurvey>
/ pages = [1=somepage]
</survey>

<surveypage somepage>
...
</surveypage>

you do


<expt>
/ blocks = [1=someblock; ...]
</expt>

<block someblock>
/ trials= [1=somepage]
</block>

<surveypage somepage>
...
</surveypage>

Note: (1) The data format will be different compared to using <survey> ("long" instead of "wide format"). (2) It will not be possible to move back and forth between pages.
