"I just downloaded the [new] upgrade this morning. How completely wonderful it was to see the new SPSS import process. It is absolutely spectacular!! The update is awesome!
Please let those who were working on it know how wonderful at least one of your users thinks it is!! Truly great minds developing some incredible software!"
"I have to tell you, I absolutely love working with WinCross. I'm sitting outside on the patio at an English Pub, working away, and I just had the urge to let you know! :-)"
"Larry Harrod is absolutly amazing. He has helped us so much when we have had questions about WinCross!
He always gets back to us very quickly with answers to our questions and is very patient when we have to ask about something more than once. Our experience with Larry and your company has been the best our department has ever had with any vendor in my twenty years with Cox. All of the online tips, videos, and information about WinCross have been amazing, too."
Cox Media Group
"I must say that I am very much enjoying the new WinCross, after using an antiquated version from many, many years ago. Anyway, I LOVE THE NEW VERSION SO MUCH! It has made working with the program to produce cross-tabs so much faster and more efficient, both on the programming side, and also on the usage side once the tables have geen generated. I really can't say enough about it."
Acumen Marketing Research, Inc.
"I feel that WinCross Support is one of the best around. Creating tables is simple to do and, depending on the size of your data, is very quick. I would highly recommend using this program."
"In only one word it is 'magnificent!' Very easy to learn, very easy to use. I strongly suggest you get it and start using it tomorrow if your really need a 'new age' tabulation software."
"All I can say is: Excellent program! It is user friendly, and really a complete software regarding cross-tabs used in Market Research. The Help section is truly a tool in order to solve doubts or questions."
Eduardo González P.
"I recommend WinCross for its capabilities through the GUI or syntax, and also for outstanding support - both by telephone and email."

You can specify how you want WinCross to round percents and statistics in Setup|Job Settings|Rounding.
There are two options for rounding. The first option is to round up values over 5 and round down values under 5. For rounding equal to 5, round to the nearest even number. The second option is to always round up values of 5 or more and round down values less than 5.
Rounding in WinCross is based upon three general rules:
Rule 1 - If the remainder beyond the last digit to be reported is less than 5, drop the last digit. Rounding to one decimal place, the number 5.3467 becomes 5.3.
Rule 2 - If the remainder is greater than 5, increase the final digit by 1. The number 5.798 becomes 5.8 if rounding to 1 digit.
Rule 3 - To prevent rounding bias, if the remainder is exactly 5, then round the last digit to the closest even number. Thus the number 3.55 (rounded to 1 digit) would be 3.6 (rounding up) and the number 6.450 would round to 6.4 (rounding down) if rounding to 1 decimal. When the number to the left of the 5 is even, no rounding occurs. For example, 4.225 would become 4.22. When the number to the left of 5 is odd, rounding will occur. For example, 4.215 would become 4.22.

Use the TEST statement in the Glossary to search for respondents that break certain conditions.
Depress and hold the Ctrl key while individually clicking on those tables you want to run, or use the Edit Selections option on the Run|Tables dialog.
The difference between a table mean and row mean is based on the type of table you’re creating. A table mean is used where every row in the calculation of the mean has only one value. If the rows represent value ranges, then the # (pound symbol) operator must be used to give the row a single value for calculations.
A row mean is appropriate when rows represent a value range and the mean is to be calculated off the actual distribution of data. In that event, a row is created with the appropriate text and logic showing the value range you want to use. In the Row Options dialog box (Setup|Tables|Row Options) you should select the appropriate statistics (Mean, Standard Deviation, Standard Error, etc.).
Please see the WinCross help topic Indexed Variables Examples for full details.
Select Run | Tables | Excel.
WinCross provides a robust number of Excel options that can be changed per run without having to make any job changes.
WinCross provides many solutions for weighting.
Mean Summary tables are easily created using the Summary of Means option in Setup|Express Tables for SPSS Data. You select the group of variables, choose the code value or range of code values for the rows and WinCross creates the table for you. The Question Title from each variable selected becomes the row text for each row and the Code Value(s) or range of Code Values specified becomes the row logic.
Top/Bottom Box Summary tables can also be easily created using the Summary of Frequencies option in Setup|Express Tables for SPSS Data. You select the group of variables, choose the code value or range of code values for the rows and the code value or range of code values for the percentaging base of each row and WinCross creates the table for you. The Question Title from each variable selected becomes the row text for each row and the Code Value(s) or range of Code Values specified becomes the row logic. WinCross automatically creates two sets of rows, one set to be used for percentaging bases with the Hide row (HR) option specified and the second set of rows is automatically created with the percentaging base specified
