Hi all,

i am designing a survey with a LOT of question organized in a YES/UNCERTAIN/NO - matrix.
Every now and then, I need the possibility of text to be added by the paricipant, when 'Yes' was chosen.

Like this (not the real questions, just a silly example):
What did you eat?
                 YES          Uncertain           No
Apples            O                O               O
Bananas           O                O               O
Fish              O                O               O 
   if yes, what kind: ______________________________
Broccoli          O                O               O
Meat              O                O               O
   if yes, what kind: ______________________________
[list goes on and on....]
At the moment, I break the matrix after each question where I need a comment field, add a short text question under the condition that 'yes' is chosen.
Continue the matrix in the next question and so on and so forth.

I wonder if there's a better (less cumbersome) way to program this sort of layout.

Any hint welcome!
M

If your list is very long then it would be better if you ask "what kind:" on next page. If you are comfortable with this type of layout then I can guide you how you can do this.:)

Thanks for your reply and kind offer. If I understand you correctly, I would have one page with a long matrix question (quick copy/paste...Yeah!) and one page with a lot of "What kind..." and "Please specify..." questions.
That would indeed be easy to program but it's not practical for the participants in this case.

I had hoped for a "trick" to use the matrix question and still have all the comment-fields conditionally appear with the respective sub-question.

Maybe that's stuff for a new question type...(matrix with comment fields or one where different field types can be combined...)

thanks for the suggestion but I am more looking for a solution to achieve the above shown layout.
i.e. give participants the possibility to specify/comment on items within a long matrix question.
