      survey stopped working

      Post

      I have a surveys database set up with the surveys/respondents/questions/responses structure that's been described in other posts. Everything has been working fine except several questions are not being created when I start a new survey. Nothing in the database has been changed. Any ideas why this would be happening?

          Well my only guess is either its corruption or something has changed (you just may not know it) based on some kind of structural/calculation issue.

          Can you go thru back up copies and find one that works?

            "starting a new survey" would require a script to generate response records in order for the respondent to enter their responses? (There is more than one way to set up a survey for new responses, but this is the most straight forward option.)

            both a problem in the script or in the data used to match question records to particular survey could cause such to happen.

            A damaged index could also be at fault--advanced recover options can repair all indexes in a file.

              Turns out some of the questions were missing from Questions. Not sure how that happened.
