Good morning. I know it's possible to pipe text from a response later in a survey using 'Placeholder fields.' But it is possible to pipe things other than the response? Specifically, I'd like to pipe text that I've defined that's different than the option ("Transportation" in the example below) and pipe nothing (the 'option 3' scenario below), all from 1 question. Here's the example (sample survey attached):

Demo question #1 (single select): What services do you use?
Option 1 reads "Service one"
Option 2 reads "Service two"
Option 3 reads "Service three"

If option 1 is chosen, pipe "Service one" later in survey (I'm able to do this with 'Placeholder fields')
If option 2 is chosen, pipe "Transportation" later in survey (Is this possible?)
If option 3 is chosen, pipe no text later in survey (Is this possible?)

Later question in the survey about satisfaction:
If option 1 is chosen, the question text would read "What is your Service one satisfaction?"
If option 2 is chosen, the question text would read "What is your Transportation satisfaction?"
If option 3 is chosen, the question text would read "What is your satisfaction?"

Thanks!

You have to use the if-statement,like:
{if(Q1==1,"Service1",if(Q1==2,"Transportation",""))}
Read the manual about the if-statement, and especially the example about nested if-statements.

I tried to adapt the code above to the survey, but it doesn't seem to work. Am I missing something?

What is your {if(SRV==1,"Service one",if(SRV==2,"Transportation"," "))} satisfaction?

Well, "it doesn't seem to work" is not very helpful.

What exactly happens? Can you export a LSS file of just this specific part of the survey for us to have a look at?

I assume that "SRV" is the code of the question and 1, 2, 3 are the answer option codes?

After some further tinkering, I got most of it to work. For the option that I'd like to pipe no text for (option 3), it's displaying a double space instead of a single space, whether or not I have a space between the double quotes in the code (bold red below):

What is your {if(SRV==1,"Service one",if(SRV==2,"Transportation"," "))} satisfaction?

Screenshot attached.

Because there is a space before { and one after }. Two spaces...

If I remove one of the spaces, then the other options won't pipe correctly:

What is your Service onesatisfaction?
What is yourService one satisfaction?

Never mind, I found a workaround for that (adjusting the spacing around the brackets as well as around the desired piped text). Thanks!

Exactly! You can always include a space after the piped texts:
What is your {if(SRV==1,"Service one ",if(SRV==2,"Transportation ",""))}satisfaction?
This should do the trick.
Or:
What is your {if(SRV==1,"Service one satisfaction?",if(SRV==2,"Transportation satisfaction?","statisfaction?"))}

A,d
What is your {if(SRV==1,"Service one",if(SRV==2,"Transportation",""))} satisfaction?
I always use it like this … real empty string

edit
What is your {if(SRV==1,"Service one ",if(SRV==2,"Transportation ",""))}satisfaction?
I always use it like this … real empty string
