How can I change the "Next" button on the final survey page to say "submit survey"

Rather than say "next" as I am doing on all other pages, I would like the final submit button to say "submit survey."  How can I do this?

Many thanks!

Thank you for your reply.  I am able to create a button but cannot remove the original button.  Both appear.  I tried using the next graphic and using the text, next.  
I get an error on the remove function.
The function call "Remove Next" does not exist.  I am using 8.3.8.

Annie, I found a fairly simple solution. Under Survey Settings\General Format\Navigation Buttons\Settings\Submit Button, write some Perl code that references the page number.

If you are on the first page, show the button label "Begin Survey". If you are on the next-to-last page (the one before your Term/Link question) show "Submit". All others show "Next."

This code by itself does not remove the "back" button. But I suppose some fancy CSS work may be able to accommodate.

Good luck.

 if(PAGENUMBER() == 1)  
  {  
   return "Begin Survey";  
  }
 elsif(PAGENUMBER() == TOTALPAGES() - 1)  
  {  
   return "Submit Survey";  
  } 
 else  
  {  
   return "Next >>";  
  } 
End Unverified%]
