# How to show the previous answer?

4 months 1 week ago #180579 by mariaa
Hi all ,

I´ve created a quiz and on the last page I´d like to create an overview of all answers the participant has made.

Below, please find an example on how this would look like for the following exemplary question.

A1 "Which of the following statistical methods are multivariate?" (multiple choice)

SQ001 Cluster analysis

SQ002 Variance

SQ003 Cross-tabulation

SQ004 Multiple regression

Let's assume that the participant has chosen "Cluster analysis" and "Cross-Tabulation" in this case. (Of course he also might have selected different answers).

Overview text:

"Question : Which of the following statistical methods are multivariate?

How do I generate the overview text (especially the "Your answer: "Cluster analysis" and "Cross-Tabulation" part)? What would the syntax look like?

Kind regards and thanks a lot

Maria

Try something like this:

`Your answer: {if(A1_SQ001 == 'Y', ,'"Cluster analysis"', '')}{if(A1_SQ001 == 'Y' AND count(A1_SQ002, A1_SQ003, A1_SQ004) > 0, ', ', '')}{if(A1_SQ002 == 'Y', ,'"Variance"', '')}{if(A1_SQ002 == 'Y' AND count(A1_SQ003, A1_SQ004) > 0, ', ', '')}{if(A1_SQ003 == 'Y', ,'"Cross-Tabulation"', '')}{if(A1_SQ003 == 'Y' AND A1_SQ004 == 'Y', ', ', '')}{if(A1_SQ004 == 'Y', ,'"Multiple regression"', '')}.`

Hi Tpartner,

thanks a lot for your approach on this!

I tried out your syntax and had to delete some commas (The error warnings told me so). After having solved this problem, I received the following error message: " Undefined variable".

Do you have any idea where the error is and how I need to adjust my syntax?

Your answer: {if(A1_SQ001 == 'Y',"Cluster analysis"', '')}{if(A1_SQ001 == 'Y' AND count(A1_SQ002, A1_SQ003, A1_SQ004) > 0, ', ', '')}{if(A1_SQ002 == 'Y',"Variance"', '')}{if(A1_SQ002 == 'Y' AND count(A1_SQ003, A1_SQ004) > 0, ', ', '')}{if(A1_SQ003 == 'Y','"Cross-Tabulation"', '')}{if(A1_SQ003 == 'Y' AND A1_SQ004 == 'Y', ', ', '')}{if(A1_SQ004 == 'Y','"Multiple regression"', '')}.

Kind regards and many thanks

Sorry, without a small sample survey I have no way of debugging that.

Looking at screenshot

{if(A1_SQ001 == 'Y',"Cluster analysis"', '')}

I put the extra ' in bold and red

I think there's actually a missing single-quote. I think Larissa wants the double-quotes in the piped text.

`{if(A1_SQ001 == 'Y','"Cluster analysis"', '')}`

Dear all,

thanks a lot for your fast feedback on this. I adjusted the single quote but now the syntax is not completely recognized.

Do you have any ideas where the mistake is?

@Tpartner: I didn´t know about the possibility of adding sample surveys . Thanks, this might be very helpful for all future problems =P I attached the survey for this question below.

It's broken because you removed one of the required single-quotes.

This works:

`{if(A1_SQ001 == 'Y','"Cluster analysis"', '')}{if(A1_SQ001 == 'Y' AND count(A1_SQ002, A1_SQ003, A1_SQ004) gt 0, ', ', '')}{if(A1_SQ002 == 'Y','"Variance"', '')}{if(A1_SQ002 == 'Y' AND count(A1_SQ003, A1_SQ004) gt 0, ', ', '')}{if(A1_SQ003 == 'Y','"Cross-Tabulation"', '')}{if(A1_SQ003 == 'Y' AND A1_SQ004 == 'Y', ', ', '')}{if(A1_SQ004 == 'Y','"Multiple regression"', '')}`

Hi,
wouldn't it be easier to use the "list" function?

Your answer: {list(if(A1_SQ001 == 'Y','"Cluster analysis"', ''),if(A1_SQ002 == 'Y','"Variance"', ''),if(A1_SQ003 == 'Y','"Cross-Tabulation"', ''),if(A1_SQ004 == 'Y','"Multiple regression"', ''))}.
