Hi, I was wondering if there was an easy way to display a string such as "Best"/"Worst" in answer fields but actually have LimeSurvey store numbers instead? It sounds simple but I haven't been able to figure out a way to do it. The specific question type I've been using is "array" but if there's a general way to do it for any relevant question type I'm all ears.

(R doesn't exactly appreciate finding text strings when I try to ask for mean(mycsv$Q1). I know I could just use find and replace on the csv files but it would be really nice to correct it here. :whistle: )

That is actually the default way. As question code you use numbers and for the Answer options you use the name.

Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:
