I am having an error that won't let me preview the survey - error generating preview

I get the error “There has been a problem trying to replace ${} with the XPath to the survey element named ‘’. There is no survey element with this name.”
I’m not sure why and what is wrong. I only have one “select one of two options” question, with a yes or no answer, if answer is yes it branches to the next and final question. If no, it doesn’t.
I have attached the screenshot.

Thank you.

I uploaded it there and it gave me the same error. I’m not sure what I need to do to adjust it.

I am trying to attach the xls format file of the form but it says new users cannot upload attachments. How can I share it?

Hi @Fmeamari, I think someone from the moderation team would give you access to upload your form and inform you about it as soon as they can.

In the meantime can you provide a screenshot showing survey and choices in your xlsform?

Sure, thank you.

Hi @Fmeamari,

The first screenshot is choices indeed, but the second screenshot is settings :slight_smile:

Can you provide a screenshot of the survey tab in the excel?
