External_choice

Hi I can't seem to get this component to work.

I followed the instructions and copied the example layout as given on http://xlsform.org/#external, however when I convert the excel file to X form the following error appears

Error: [row : 3] List name not in choices sheet: group_id
[row : 3] select one external is only meant for filtered selects.

The aim is that I have up to 60 groups. In each group there are about 40 members. I need to record answers from each member in all the groups.

Do I need to use cascading sheets, external sheets or what other option is there?

Thanks in advance
Lizzie

You are more likely to get assistance if you create and attach a simplified
form (with as few prompts as possible) that illustrates the problem you are
having.
