Collected data - Data Export

Hi,

I have an ongoing survey and everyday i make it a point to export the collected data. I noticed that the order of the cases are shuffled each time i export. Is it possible that the order of the cases will be based on the date it was collected so that the recent ones will be placed at the end? Please advise.

Thank you,
MIchelle

No. There is no control over how the cases are exported. But once they are exported you can resort them into any desired order, e.g. in Stata or SPSS or another package.
