Pre-populating data from categorical variables with value labels

Hello,

Our team has only been able to figure out how to pre-populate information
from a free text field, but not from a categorical variable with value
labels.

For example if we ask a list of travel modes: car, rickshaw, bus, etc. We
try to pull data from that question into the text of another question. But
the code appears instead of the name:

"how long does it take you to ride the 1 to work?"

instead of "how long does it take you to ride the rickshaw to work?"

I haven't been able to find guidance on this online (maybe I'm not using
the right search terms). Is this possible? Could anyone share guidance on
this?

Thanks!

Hi Kate,

You'll want to use a jr:choice-name calculation. See the attached form.
