The Data Manager can be installed on a computer at a different location so more than one person can be entering data for a job.
This is a cost-effective solution for small marketing research companies that do not have high-volume in-house data entry capabilities. The free version of the Data Manager has the same features as the registered version except that it is limited to 35 data records (respondents).
-First, use StatPac for Windows to design the study and data entry form. You can use the free version or the registered version to create these two files. The study information is stored in a .cod file (codebook) and the data entry form is stored in a .frm file (form).
-Give the two files to your data entry person. You can copy the two files to removable media (e.g., a floppy disk or USB flash drive) and physically give them to your data entry person, or you can send them as e-mail attachments to your data entry person.
-Give your data entry the link to download the Data Manager from our Web site. They'll install the Data Manager on their computer and use your serial number and UNLOCK code to remove the 35 record limit.
-Your data entry person can now enter the data using the study information and data entry form you created. When they're finished, they simply e-mail their data file to you, or give you a diskette or USB flash drive containing the data file they created.
