Disaster..a question is being left out

What about exporting the results that you have received already, then deactivate the survey, then include the missing question and later join the results tables for analysis?

That is what I'm doing at the moment, but it is the part completed answers I'm most concerned with, which are nearly half my (oh so precious) responses!

If no-one can identify the fix in 1.9+ then I intend to manually enter the incomplete responses, save them for 'resuming', then distribute the username/pwds.

Be a lot easier if I could just add the answer column and fix the data and/or code in-situ though. Project is already a month behind so could do without a day of data entry!


As an aside though, to balance all this grumbling, my research would never have got off the ground at all were it not for limesurvey.

From what I have read so far the only reason for the question not to appear might be the changed question order.
Maybe you can check the question order of section 2 in the database if you find something obvious like two questions sharing the same order ID or the like.

Hi, thanks so much for the tip.

I don't want to use more of your precious time, but just in case it triggers an idea - the sort order is fine but one odd thing is that the sub-questions (ie, answer options) are not in the lime_questions table, as others seem to, just lime_answers. They do appear when I edit them in the admin site.

Sorry, ignore that, none of the ranking questions appear in the questions table.

That is default behavior.

Just to mention that I've upgraded my installation and the question that was previously omitted now successfully appears, so this is fixed.
