version2.0,i already has a active survey which has 20 questions.
i want to add a new question even text display question, i must stop the survey and lost the data?
i think it's possible to keep old data and set new question answer like NULL something.
am i right? any thought to do it?

Yes, in 2.05 only.

You can use 2 system
- Re import an old database : it work looking at the DB settings
- Use the VV export/import : looking at the EM code for each column.

In 2.00 and older : use VV1 export/import

Then you need to hack the VV export (with a clean Calc) : remove and add column with same header.

Hi Denis,
i have 3 doubts about the method:
1.why export and then import the lss?why not copy the survey directly?
2.why use vv as agent? why not change the mysql table directly´╝č
3.may i stop the the existing survey and then edit mysql table, then active the survey.this method will keep token usable.
