There are a variety of ways of adding additional variables into data files, including:
- Obtain a new data file that contains the new variable and then reimport it (see Updating Projects with New or Revised Data). This is generally the safest method (provided it is easy to get a new data file).
- Paste Data (e.g. From Excel). Note that it is easy to make a mistake working this way, as it assumes that the data being appended is in the same order as the data file in Q.
- Append an extra data file (see Multiple Data Files).
