Error java.lang.string cannot be cast to java.lang.integer

i trying to know what cases this error?
and how can i fix this error??

This is very form dependent. If you are still having the problem and
can provide a one or two question form that reproduces this issue, I'm
glad to look at it for you.

Dear Yaw and fellow ODK users,

My form is reproducing the same error. I have looked at it again and again and turned things around, but every time I try to complete it in ODK, this same error comes up just after filling a few questions. What could be the problem? Please see attached the form. Appreciate your time and support. Completion_Survey_North_Household_Questionnaire2.xlsx (41.1 KB)

After too much experimenting, I have been able to figure it out. Basically, the problem was being caused by conditioning ODK to use a string variable in the repeat group, instead of an integer.


I have the same problem here can you help me with that Musinguzi?
