Survey123 - strange error when trying to build survey from XLSforms

Hello everyone and happy new year!


I'm starting out my new year by trying to build what should be a pretty simple Survey123 project. However, every time I try to build the survey I am receiving a strange error that I cannot resolve.


For context, I am using Survey123 Connect for ArcGIS (Version 2.3.24) and am using the 'Advanced' option.


Error as below:


The error is occurring on a couple of different fields. I don't think I'm doing anything too complicated - the fields I am getting issues on are:


1 - Record date / time. I would like this field to be hidden (using type = hidden), autopopulate with current date / time (calculation = now()). Using bind::esri:fieldType = esriFieldTypeDate

2 - Record lat / long of geopoint location. Both of these fields are hidden (type = hidden), calculation = pulldata("@geopoint",${LOCATION},"y") ("y" for lat and "x" for long). Using bind::esri:fieldType = esriFieldTypeDouble


The issue seems to relate to the bind::esri:fieldType column, as when I remove these values, the issue goes away. My understanding however is that as I would like these particular questions to be hidden, that I need to use this column.


Can anyone shed any light on this? Copy of the xlsforms spreadsheet attached for your reference.


Many thanks.
