When i create a form and I don't finished and save for later, I go to edit form saved and some data don't saved correctly

1. What is the problem? Be very detailed.
When I'm creating a form and I save the form for later, don't save all the data, only save the fields with numbers

2. What app or server are you using and on what device and operating system? Include version numbers.

I'm working with ODK Collect

3. What you have you tried to fix the problem?
I've trying with differents ways to save the data, but don't solved the problem

4. What steps can we take to reproduce the problem?
Look the screen by my cellphone

5. Anything else we should know or have? If you have a test form or screenshots or logs, attach below.

For example:
In Departamento was a choose one, and this was not saved because is an option to choose
In Municipio was a choose one by Departamento, and this was not saved because is an option to choose
In Vereda was a String, and don't saved it
In Sector I wrote "Popular 2" as an answer and saved it correctly because have a number "2"
In Predio was saved correctly because there were numbers only

I need help because I have other 4 forms with the same problems.

Thanks a lot.

Did you code the survey form directly in XML or did you create it in Excel first?

I created the form on ODK Build, (https://build.getodk.org/)

Are you able to "Export as XLSForm"?

No, I'm not able to export the XLSForm


Maybe because the form is to long

Can you "Save Form to File" to get an .odkbuild file?

Yes, I can do it, but the forum don't leave me share the .odkbuild file

Can you zip the .odkbuild file and attach that?

Yes, I can
Thanks a lot

The downloadable version of Build was able to export to XLSForm. It makes it easier to check the form and troubleshoot. Unfortunately the relevant and calculation don't all migrate cleanly.

What is the purpose of the Calculate = tablet1piepsilon in your form?

There's no reason to Calculate = tablet1piepsilon, it's only an automatic value when I entry to modified the form
Maybe is for the credential that're saved on the web site
But I deleted the tablet1piepsilon on calculate and now saved the data, so, this was the error
Thanks a lot for your help
