Guide

  1. Start by inserting a Table Data macro.
    Let's give it the name "Mood Table".

  2. Inside the Table Data macro, create a table like the one in the following image:



  3. Using the Date Data, Number Data, List Data and List Option macros, fill in the cells of the "Mood Table" in the Table Data macro, like in the following image:



  4. Click on each List Data macro, and click Edit.
    We want the options to be displayed as checklists so under the Type pull-down menu, choose check.

  5. In each List Option macro, remember to insert a relevant emoticon ( (smile)(sad) or (big grin) ) and then give each macro a corresponding value, such "Happy", "Sad" or "Excited".

  6. You can now click Edit Contents and fill in the data in the "Mood Table".
