Column properties: Question with the option of multiple answer

Hi,

I am a complete amateur in the fields of this software;

In my questionnaire we have the following question:
Where do you buy lunch? Cross the following services you use:

School Cafeteria
Grocery Store
Starbucks
Peppes Pizza
Eat
Narvesen
Other

What settings/properties should i set for this column;
so i am able to plot multiple answer from a single respondent

You will need a separate column for each choice, so seven columns for this question. Code the response as 1 if they selected, 0 if they did not.

An alternative is to have one column but code the responses to reflect the different possible combinations, e.g., 1=cafeteria, 2=store, 3=starbucks ... 8=cafeteria and store, etc. This would be quite tedious.
