Hi @benjiekatkam
welcome to the forum! Please introduce yourself here!

could you attach your form? It would help us to investigate the issue.

I was able to convert your form using
Could you try again? In your screenshoot, I can see that the version is v1.6.0 but now it's 1.5.0 so maybe that newer one was faulty and was replaced by v1.5.0.

thanks for your help now it is working perfectly

I got the same error today in version 1.6.1
I tried older forms that were running fine before, but now in version 1.6.1 it is generating the same error attached in this thread.

Hi @houssam_shamseddeen

could you also attach your form?

Hello dear,

Attached is form and its related item set file.

Thanks in advance.

itemsets.csv (175 KB)

fpss.xlsx (31.3 KB)

You need to add external choices sheet for pod_subdistrict like in this sample form

Then after converting using the itemsets.csv will be generated and you will be able to download it. Looks like you prepared the csv file on your own.
