Hi LS forum,

I am currently running my own hosted LS, Version 2.05+ Build 140422, and the university I work at is running an older version, Version 2.00+ Build 130802. When I import a survey structure (.lss file) from my site to the university's, I get an error that states "Survey.questionindex is not defined".

When a university tech removes the tags with questionindex (using Notepad), the file would seem to import ok.

My question to you is, what will not work properly due to the removal of survey elements with the questionindex tag?

And, can I run the survey with those tags removed?

I can use your insight to advise my university tech, and to also take a decision whether this survey will need to run on my own hosted site or the university's.

As always, thank you for your help.

Cheers,

-George

I should have posted the code lines I referred to. These two lines are new in version 2.05 that are not in version 2.00:

<fieldname>questionindex</fieldname>
<questionindex><![CDATA[0]]></questionindex>

Can an LS engineer tell me what I will lose or what won't work properly if I remove these two lines?

Thank you for any advice.

Regards,

-George
