Passing Data from One Survey to Another - Limitations?

I am working on a project where multiple surveys are needed, each depending upon what data are collected and how they are collected. I have been testing the linking of a main survey (collects some items such as name, date, and location) which passes some basic info to a couple of child surveys with some success. From the child survey, a third survey would be called, with some similar info passed to it. I have run into a few issues:


1. Is there a limitation on what type of info can be passed from one survey to another? I have success passing text info, but not a date or a text value created using Calculate.


2. I can pass a text value from a parent to a child survey but not able to pass the same text value from a child to a grandchild survey. Is the ability to pass data from one survey another limited to one step/generation?


I'll continue to experiment and test, but any info you can provide is greatly appreciated.
