Hi!

I'm using the vvexport file to import answers to limesurvey. I collect datas from my own database and write it to the csv file, but when I connect LSQuestionID to column name(in my program) I realized that the column names of the ranking questions look like 23111X3X6701, 23111X3X6702, 23111X3X6703, etc.

For example, if I have question id 1 and this is a ranking question(column name in csv: 11,12,13,14,15, etc), limesurvey take care that doesn't generate question id 11,12,13,14,etc?

Thanks,
Misi

This seems like a design flaw to me to; I don't see how limesurvey can disambiguate the response column 23111X3X1231 between

- question id = 123, rank = 1
- question id = 12, rank = 31
- question id = 1231 [no rank]

or is something more subtle going on? If not, it feels like it needs a separator to disambiguate e.g. 23111X3X123R1
