Converting scales to numeric values

I have a number of scales in my survey (eg. not important - very important). Is there a way on converting them to numerical values (eg. 1-5) before exporting the data?

Welcome to the community, @PipBeale! Could you also let the community know how you coded the values for the scale? i.e., did you do something like …

  1. Strongly disagree
  2. Disagree
  3. Neither agree nor disagree
  4. Agree
  5. Strongly agree

As in the screenshot

@PipBeale, could you also share with the community the XML value of the labels for Not important, Slightly, …? In the XML value, you could provide 1, 2, 3 respectively to achieve what you are trying to do.
