Hi All,

I have got a form with a nested repeat, whose results i would like to display in a table, but i cant get the feature report template to work. I would like for a user to be able to choose a category and then add as many pendencies and according due dates as they like. My feature report should then show the topic in the left cell and add new lines in column 2 & 3 of the feasture report according to the specifications done in the form.

Example:

Topic

Pendencies

Due date

Action reauired?

A

Pendency a1

asap

no

Pendency a2

31.12.2020

B

Pendency b1

asap

yes

C

Pendency C1

today

yes

Pendency C2

2020

Pendency C3

2030

Here's my code for the xlsx form...

typenamelabel
begin repeatentries
select_one topictopicTopic
begin repeatpendenciesPendencies
textpendencyPendency
textdue_dateDue Date:
end repeat
select_one yes_noactionAction required?
end repeat

and the feature report template:

Topic

Pendencies

Due date

Action reauired?

${#entries}${topic}

${#pendencies}${pendency}

${due_date}${/}

${action}${/}

When i upload the feature report template to Survey123 online, i get the error message: "Failed to parse ${action}. Field ${action} does not exist or cannot be found in current parsing scope.". I think thats due to the fact that my nested repeat is spread over two columns. Is there any way to solve this problem? Would greatly appreciate someone's help on this.

Thanks,

Flo

Hi Flo,

You should be able to fix the error message if you use the following syntax for showing the nested repeats in a table:

Topic

Pendencies

Action required?

Due date

${#entries}${#pendencies}${entries.topic}

${pendency}

${due_date}${/}

${entries.action}${/}


More info on this can be found in the repeats section of the Feature report templates documentation.

It isn’t possible to display multiple repeat rows next to a single adjacent parent row, but if you include the repeat on a different line, you can get a similar effect. See example below.

Topic

Pendencies

Action required?

Due date

${#entries} ${topic}

 

 

${entries.action}

 

${#pendencies}${pendency}

${due_date}${/}

${/}
