What do you mean with 1000 questions?

10.000 respondent questionnaires? --> Should be no big deal
10.000 questions in one questionnaire? --> You will run into the limits of the database for columns per table (depends on the database engine use - there is some information about this in the manual)

Hi,

No, not a major issue here : SQL is done for this :
Same time to load one line .

We only load one line at a time. (Sometime all of the survey). All not loaded question don't take time.
The biggest issue in time is the DATA transfer from SQL to memory.

Assistance on LimeSurvey forum and LimeSurvey core development are on my free time.
