Hi Iamnarendrasingh, thanks a lot for your response but the package i am asking is in Stata to to import a do file that generates the stata data using the survey sheet and choices sheet but i was having a problem of creating the do file.

Thanks a lot again my friend, would you please instruct me how can i use the link, tnx

This error message in STATA is telling you that you have to install specialexp before you can install odkmeta.

In STATA, type ssc install specialexp
Then when that's done you should be able to install odkmeta

Thanks a lot again.
