Pipe single answers from multiple choice questions into a repeated (based on answer) question


Hi, I recently asked this question and it was marked as solved, even though the suggested solution did not solve the problem. Here is my further comments in the issue, with the original question and answer below:

    Hi Mary,

    Thanks for your response.

    Unfortunately that hasn’t solved the problem. That was the way I originally tried to do it and I am still getting the same response: Both answers piped into the question (separated by a comma) and the question repeated.

    I wonder what is different about how I am doing it. The source question is a multiple choice ‘Checkbox’ question if that helps.

    Perhaps it is the merge code I am using?

I am trying to pipe answers into questions – simple enough, however the answers are sourced from a multiple choice question and I want to pipe them one at a time into the question and repeat the question based on the number of multiple choices selected. 

I know how to pipe answers and repeat questions, however I am getting every answer piped into every question. 

e.g.: I am asking which seminars people attended, London, New York or Melbourne. Some people will have attended more than one. Let’s imagine they answer New York and Melbourne. I then want to ask: 

Thinking about the NEW YORK seminar, which of these things would have made it better?

then repeat the question and ask:

Thinking about the MELBOURNE seminar, which of these things would have made it better?


At the moment I am getting the following twice:

Thinking about the NEW YORK, MELBOURNE seminar, which of these things would have made it better?


is there a way to pipe only one answer of a multiple choice question at a time?

Thank you, 

M Nutt

Hi M Nutt,

Yes, this is possible. We were able to achieve this by ensuring that the question that should repeat has the following options…Under Piping/Repeat, select the multiple choice question in the SECOND drop down menu. Then select the radio button option “Repeat based on the selected answers”. This ensured the question was repeated for each selection in the linked multiple choice question that came before it. Our example was:

Q1. Select the following positions you are reporting salary data for:

– Position A (x)
– Position B
– Position C
– Position D (x)

Q2. What is the base salary for POSITION A?
______ USD
Q2. What is the base salary for POSITION D?
______ USD
