Piping and repeating


Hi I am trying to pipe selected responses into the two following questions e.g.


Which, if any, of these common childhood illnesses has {NAME} had in the last 12 months?

  • Hay-fever
  • 3. Ear infections
  • 4. Asthma
  • 5. Whooping cough or pertussis
  • 6. Other respiratory disorders including chest infections, bronchiolitis, bronchitis, pneumonia
  • 7. Cough lasting more than four weeks
  • 8. Wheezing in the chest


What type(s) of treatment has {NAME} had for {HIS/HER} {Condition 1} in the last 12 months?

  • No treatment
  • 1. Medicines, pills, or inhaler from a GP or medical specialist
  • 2. Medicines, pills, or inhaler from an alternative health practitioner
  • 3. Surgical procedure
  • 4. Physical/occupational/speech therapy

and Q3

How many of those times has {HE/SHE} been admitted to hospital due to {Condition 1} in the last 12 months?

  • Never
  • 1. Number of times _ _ (range 1-90)
  • 99. Don’t Know

I can get it piped into the first but not the second – can you please send some instructions on how to do this

Many thanks

    Hi Cherie,

    Can you please clarify that nature of your problem.  Are you saying that the merge code for {Condition 1} is working in Q2, but not Q3?  

    Piping and repeating has to do with using responses from one question as possible responses for following questions.  If I understand your question correctly, this is not really the problem here.

      Hi Jim thanks for your message – if one or more conditions are selected in Q1, then the following information is required in Q2 & 3 for each condition.

      Hopefully that is clearer

      Many thanks
