    Insert previous reponses later as response options

    [edited from support email]

    I've been wondering for some time if it is possible to take responses from multiple previous questions and insert those responses into a multiple-response question later. To explain what I want to accomplish, I give participants multiple choice questions to select their religious group, their racial group, their political group, etc (say about 8-10 different categories). What I want them to be able to do later is see a listing of the groups they've already chosen and pick 4 of them (the ones they consider important to them).

    So far I've settled for presenting their answers back to them in a set of fill-in-the-blank questions and asking them to type in 4 groups that are important, but this causes problems with spelling, repetition, and unusuable responses.

    You can insert previous fill in the blank and scale responses into question wording and response options by placing the variable name in <> brackets. In your case, you might have a multiple response question like this:

    Code:
     What groups are important to you?
    1. <religion>
    2. <race>
    3. <politics>
    I know you can draw these from previous scale response and fill in the blank items doing it this way. Not sure if you can draw from previous multiple response items. If not, you could do that using the advanced features via the responses.xls file (see guide for more on that).

    Note that this requires v2006 or later, I believe.

    Hope that helps!
