Hello all.
I like very much LS, it has been a awsome tool for me in my work.
I am now implementing a new survey and i have a doubt about how to do it.
The problem is as follow:

I have an excel spreadsheet with the following format
university typecourse typeestablishment namecourse
publicbacheloruniversity Aengineering
privatePHDuniversity Bphysics
publicmaster degreeuniversity Cgeology

My question is:
how can I transform these data in LS questions ?
I want them to filter each other as i select (maybe from a dropdown box ...) from the first to the last.

for example
1st dropdown I select the type of school for example "private"
2nd dropdown I select a degree , for example "bachelor"
3rd dropdown will only present me with university names wich are "private" and have "bachelor" degrees
4th dropdown will only present me with courses from the university chosen in the 3rd dropdown

I dont know if dropdowns will do this, or if there is a beteer option
within limesurvey question types.

I have been struggling with this with no solution.

If anyone can help I would be very appreciated.
(sorry for my english :)

Tnaks all, and keep up the good working.

Currently there is no way to apply conditions or relevance to answers so you will need to create separate questions for all possibilities (probably a huge task) or use JavaScript to filter the dropdowns.
