Skip based on number of checks

Hi everyone,

I am trying to build a skip based on the number of check boxes selected.

More specifically, I'm wanting to build a skip if the respondent checks only 1 of 7 check boxes.

Thank you for any help!

An easy way would be to create a constructed list, and use AIC (QuestionName).  Then you can write a skip based on the List Length of your new list.  So, if the new list is called NEW, then you could use  ListLength(NEW) = 1

Another way would be to use the numchecked function.

The NumChecked function was created specifically for this type of problem as Marion had indicated. It's the most simplest way to solve your problem. I love using Jays method when storing items in lists.
Sometimes I forget the simple solutions they have provided us! :-)
As long as we keep reminding each other.
Thank you!  The numchecked function worked!
