Hi everybody,

I have a csv.file with 3000 cells of text and I would like to import this file in a survey so that each of the 3000 cells is transformed to one question in the survey. Then I would like to randomize these 3000 questions. Would this be possible and if yes, how could I do this?

Thank you very much for your help!

Lilly

Create a survey with 2 question, add it to a random question group, export it in TSV format.
Open in excel and update the file accordinf to existing file.

Look at manual.limesurvey.org/Excel_Survey_Structure

BUT !
3000 questions > look at manual.limesurvey.org/General_FAQ#...regarding_survey_size

Thank you very much for your help. However, I tried to export the survey in txt. file, but the only two options I have are to export them in an .lss or. .xml format. Could you just advise me how to export them in an .txt file? I use version 1.92. Is it maybe only possible in a newer version?

Hi

This feature is available starting in version 2.0
Note, this feature is also available for 1.92, but was added after the feature freeze, so it is not part of the base code. Expert users can add that functionality from GitHub

source : manual.limesurvey.org/Excel_Survey_Structure

But : why don't upgrade ?
