Adding open-end questions into constructed lists

Good afternoon, everyone, hope you are doing well.

I need to add an open-end answer to a constructed list. Is there any Perl command where I could insert such kind of field in a constructed list? Or is a mor complex logic needed in order to achieve the objective?

Thanks a lot!

Best Regards,

Lighthouse Studio has built in support for other specify list items.  Do you need something different from that?

You can insert any question answer into a list item by using the following SSI Script: [%Q1%]

So if you defined this as item 1 in your parent list, the answer at Q1 would be inserted.

You may have multiple questions where you can add to your parent list as such ...

Item 1-[%Q1%]
Item 2-[%Q5%]
Item 3-[%Q10%]

So Item 1=the response from Q1, Item 2=the response from Q5 and Item 3=the response from Q10 in the above example.

Zachary does ask a good question. Why do you need to insert an O/E response into a list? Do you need to rate / rank various O/E responses?
