Repeat a Set of Questions based on Number provided for a previous question

Hello Community,

I need help with resolving a repeat group item in my XLSForm.

Example: If the user specifies 2, I want the next question to repeat twice
and accept entries 2 times.
I have something like this:

*type * *name *

··· * label repeat_count* select_one LS_number q2a 2. How many owners who refused are available? begin repeat repeat_group Owner Reason select_one LS_reasons r1 2a. Why did the Owner refuse? ${q2a} end repeat

I want Question 2a. to repeat based on the answer provided for Question 2.
But ODK allows you to add more Groups at 2a. until you choose "Do not add".

Thank you,
Bryan

You can use repeat_count (look for the column in the xlsform template).

Thank you, Anonymous Helper!

When I check the xlsform page on repeats ( http://xlsform.org/#repeats )
and implement the
concept there; I still get an error. Please see screenshot attached.
I'm not sure if it's because I made the question that initiates the repeat
group [select_one] type instead of an [integer] type..???

Thank you,

Likely the question 2 results in a non-integer and positive (perhaps it's a
text) number so that it violates the repeat_count.

Thak you, Sir. Le Dang!

The question 2 are listed options and references the numbers from the
[choices] sheet. Where the [name] are
represented in number formats....Like: 1 2 3 4 5

Do I have to change question 2 from the [select_one] type to probably
[integer] ???

Can you please just give an example. I searched the entire group and
seems not to get it, :slight_smile:

No need to change the question type, just force the value type to int() in
the repeat_count column:

int(${q2a})
