I have been trying to deploy my data collection form but keep getting the same error message: “unable to deploy form”.
I attached my xls form below. When I checked for errors in the form, using this link ODK - XLSForm Online v2.x, I had no trouble previewing the form and there were no errors in its appearance or function.
Thank you, @Kal_Lam ! I opted for the second choice because I cannot make my choice list shorter. However, now I’ve encountered another error. I can deploy the form(!!!), but when I open it, get the following message:
I am trying to deploy a form that uses a select_one_from_file function several times because my choice list is very long. I am able to deploy the form, but when I try to open it, I get an error message:
Yes, this is a known issue. So once you upload your XLSForm to the server, do not try editing the same in the formbuilder. If you have to make any edits, download the form as XLSForm and then make edits as needed.
@kstarkweather8, try keeping the relevant part of the form (with select_one_from_file question type) and make a simple test to see if that works instead of testing it from the entire XLSForm. Note: If that passes, try validating your XLSForm through the online validator to see if any other syntax issues affect the loading.
