Odkmeta - variable start not found

Hi all, I'm using Kobotoolbox and now trying to import data into STATA but I am getting an error that "variable start not found" when I try to run the import.do file created by odkmeta.

  • start
    char start[Odk_name] start
    variable start not found

Does anyone know what I need to do to resolve this?


Hi @Kate_Schneider

It looks like you are missing the star variable or its misspelled.

Is the variable name star or start?2

thanks for looking Ronald! Turns out my csv file was not formatted correctly, so I fixed this. But I have other errors I can't figure out and will post separately.


I am facing the same problem you mentioned, can you please mention how you update your csv file and fix the problem ?

many thanks
