Welcome back to the community, @ugpmsguinee! Would you mind changing fonts used under the myfilter to a normal text without the - within text to see if this solves your issue?

Dear assistance mates of Kobo forum,
Forms are laoding well right now without error in kobo project dedicated account cloud server but it takes for exense 3 days for minimum of 10 000 around database records after buggs check and compiling from the platform.
But I did not remove the dash signs inside the ID of entity (like inside Kin-Tél-Thi-Ndi-31660211479) but forms are loading now and display easily Enketo page interface as normal

Tanks anyway for paying more attention on my concern.

NB: Here are attached screenshot of health care process form displayed after error checks and compiling xlsform code

U r welcome and very happy to see you back after 1 year around. When I completed the survey system for collecting childbearing women et children less than 5 years old in order to get provided free health care and heath care centers reimbursed every quarter by World Bank via our Project Implementing Unit (PIU) in Guinea Conakry (West Africa).
I succeeded this system by the grace of all of you assistance I will never forget and we still stay in touch as longer as my project continue implementation in the country.

Have all of you a good day.
