Unable to deploy the form

Please help me! I am trying to deploy our form and get the message:

unable to deploy
your form cannot be deployed because it contains errors:
Expected value: line 2 column 1 (char 1)

I don’t understand what this means and need to fix this as I am trying to train my data collectors in the survey in the next 4 hours!

Your urgent help is most appreciated.


Hi @teklebirhan,

Welcome to the community! Maybe this post discussed previously could help you solve your issue.

The possible reason for seeing the error message is due to some typo where you should have made in your survey form. Try validating them with this online validator and you should be able to identify and fix it out.

Have a great day!

Error: The name column for the ‘lh7yv24’ choice list contains these duplicates: ‘others’. Duplicate names will be impossible to identify in analysis unless a previous value in a cascading select differentiates them. If this is intentional, you can set the allow_choice_duplicates setting to ‘yes’. Learn more: XLSForm.org.
