plus use the same order in a select question with a constructed list?

Hi
Just to be more perfect. Can I also apply the same order of this randomized BLOCKLIST per respondent to sort the answerts shown within a select question?

Example:
 
For the order a1/b1 and a2b2 show answers a_ans/b_ans and
for the order b1/a1 and b2/a2 show answers b_ans/a_ans?

Sure, if you just have two answers for those questions.

For a1, let's assume our list to be used for the answers is called FoodList, with item1 being Pizza and item 2 being Ice Cream.  The list used for randomizing the blocks is called BlockListRand.  If I use the function ListValue(BlockListRand,1) it will give me the item # in the first spot of BlockListRand.  So, if I make a constructed list called FoodListRand, I could tell it to do the following:

Add(FoodList,ListValue(BlockListRand,1))
Add(FoodList,ListValue(BlockListRand,2))

So, if BlockListRand comes out to be 2 then 1, the above instructions would evaluate to

Add(FoodList,2)
Add(FoodList,1)
