Where can I validate XLSForms?

Where can I validate XLSForms?

With the online validator here ODK - XLSForm Online v2.x.
I would recommend to do this even multiple times during development of a form.

Thanks! I already validated my form… There are no errors. Still I get the same error message when trying to create a new form.


And when trying to update an existing form I won’t get an error message but I can’t update.

@gecenab, maybe you could share your XLSForm with the community now. The community should be able to help you identify the syntax issues if any are present.


This is the form I´m trying to update. It has minor differences from the one already uploaded as a draft on myKobo account.

Thank you all!

I just tried uploading a XLSForm a form of an already implemented project as a new project, and I get the same Could no import XLSForm! error.

This file seems fine. I just uploaded and there was no issue. Maybe, logout from your account and loging again.

Thanks @rahmat . That just solved the problem.

Is there any reasonable explanation for that error? And its solution?

Sometimes, when you are logged in for longer period. Kobo may ask you to re-login or refresh the page. This applies for most of the online platforms.
