Can I INSERTAN a value from Other (please, sepecify) text field?

Hello.

In my survey, I am asking for a game title and I have a List (Radio) type of question that has a number (5) of answers + an option "other" with mandatory text input (Q01). In the following question (Q02), I would like to ask about the one selected title using INSERTAN. It works perfectly for the pre-defined answers, but when the respondents selects "other" and fills the text, only string "-oth-" is inserted in the wording of Q02 (and that makes the question meaningless).

Is there a way how to insert the content of the text field into the wording of Q02? Please note that it is not a comment filed. I assume I should use some conditioning as

{if(Q01_a == "Y" || Q01_b == "Y" || Q01_c == "Y" || Q01_d == "Y" || Q01_e == "Y" ISERTAN:Q01) && if(Q01_?? == "Y" INSERTAN:Q01_??_??)}

but I am not sure what would be the SGQA code for the option other and for the linked text filed.

Any hints? Many thanks in advance.
Katerina.

If the Q01 answer codes are "a", "b", "c", "d" and "e", then the equation for the inserted text would be:
{if(Q01.code == 'a' OR Q01.code == 'b' OR Q01.code == 'c' OR Q01.code == 'd' OR Q01.code == 'e', Q01.shown, Q01_other.shown)}

Cheers,
