Hello.

We are using MOSS 2007 surveys, but we have found that if a question holds linebreaks, the breaks (newline) will not show on the question.

It will show if i would edit the question, but not when a user responds to the survey.

It seems to me that this is kinda weird, that a survey can't take new lines.

It seems that the line feeds are save in the database, linefeed are converted to \n\r, which would be line feed and carriage return, so it should be there.

Does anybody have a solution to the problem.

Mats

I am also facing the same problem of not being able to format the question in a survey.

MatsLindberg, if you get a solution to this please share it with me too.

Meanwhile I'll keep looking for any alternatives.

Thanks in advance.

We are having this same problem with all surveys.

Isn't there a way to format these surveys to mirror 2003 Line breaks are totally gone.

HELP!

Months ago when I hit this same issue, our MOSS experts told me that I should use InfoPath Forms instead. They suggested that is the direction Microsoft prefers. If so, why build complex capabilities into the base survey tool like conditional branching, Lookup and BDC capabilities

Of course I am told to forget using BDC with surveys......pulling dynamic data from AD is much easier to setup with InfoPath than with BDC.

The use of InfoPath with an implemnetation we are doing has performance issues. Not bad to us, but the customer is complaining with a 2-3 second response....they want instantaeous. Can't have everything apparently!
