Choosing a lookup table

Hi Is it possible for an answer to a previous question to choose the
relevant lookup table? For example, if the respondent answers that they are
from a certain commune, the system then chooses the lookup table that lists
the villages in that commune?

I would put it all in one look up table but there are thousands of villages
so I don’t think it would cope.

Any thoughts?

thanks Nicola

Hi Nicola,

Please see the documentation here

for
an explanation on how to do this.

Thx - but for this to work, don’t they all have to be in one excel file?

Nicola,

The principle of filtering lookup tables will function the same regardless
of if all of the lookup tables are in one file or distributed across many
(IE if every worker received a different set of villages). Apologies if I’m
misunderstanding your question - if so maybe provide some more context on
what you’re trying to do?

Cheers,
Will
