If a document takes a seemingly unreasonably long-time to open or compute it is likely that the cause of this is one or more of the following reasons:
- There is a table on the first page of your document which is very slow to compute.
- The document has a large data file, but it is not saved as an SPSS file. Displayr can load large SPSS files much faster than it can load other formats. If your data is large and it is in a different format then consider resaving it as an SPSS file via Publish > Export Data > Download as SPSS (.SAV).
- It is a large uncompressed SPSS file (1 GB or more). These can be very slow to load. You can consider importing your data into Displayr as a .QDat file via Publish > Export Data > To Displayr Cloud Drive as Q Data File (.QDat) and updating your document with the compressed file from the Displayr Cloud Drive. You should notice a dramatic reduction in the size of the data file. See How to Reduce the Size of a Data File for Upload to the Displayr Cloud.
- It is a large file, is saved as an SPSS file, but your document is still slow. See Reduce the Number of Unnecessary Variable and Variable Sets.
- Omit old data (e.g. if you are only showing the last 12 months of data, then delete earlier data) from your source data file. See How to Delete Cases From a Data Set
- Omit unused variables, e.g. variables used in previous versions of your projet that you no longer need. See How to Delete Variables From a Project.
