Repeat randomized list

Dear all,

I am facing the following situation:

I have two grid questions after one another which "belong" together.

Grid 1 (QCb01): Asking respondents to specify their minimum willingness to pay for a list of 5 items (e.g. Apples, pears, bananas, ...). This predefined list is randomized to avoid any biases.

Grid 2 (QCb02): Asking respondents to specify their maximum willingness to pay for the same list of 5 items.

In the second grid, I now would like to have the same list in the exact same (still randomized) order as in the grid before. Put differently, the list in itself should be randomized for every respondent, yet every respondent himself should see in the two grids the same order of items.

Thank you very much in advance and best regards.

If you use a constructed list to perform the randomisation in your grid, your problem will be solved.

Your constructed list will look something like this ...
ADD(FruitList)
Randomize()

I have assumed your QCb01 parent list is using a list called "FruitList".

Now use this list at both grid questions and your fruit order will appear the same at QCb01 and QCb02.
