Looking at your xlsform i see the following issues:
The name should be as follows:
- Must begin with a letter of the alphabet or an underscore (_). Name starting with a number is not allowed. e.g.
1st districtused in
B19is not allowed. Maybe you could re-write it as
- Should not have a space in-between. Maybe you could use underscore (_) if you do need space. e.g.
mountain provinceused in
B28is not allowed. Maybe you could re-write it as
- The name should also be unique within a certain variable. FYI, if you look at the choices sheet you shared above you will see
namebeing duplicated within

you will seeburgos
being used twice. Maybe you could useburgos
forB223`. I would generally prefer giving a unique number starting from 1,2,3 … for each variables.
- Lastly i would also change the
