Make table row(s) visible based on previous response

Is it possible to make only certain rows of a table visible based on a previous response?  For example, I have a table with 8 rows of different elements.  If a respondent has identified wtih one of the elements early in the survey, is it possible to only show that one table row?

We at Six 9s Customer Research often limit the displayed rows in a rating grid question based on a prior question's selections by using a constructed list for the grid's row using the AIC (Adds members chosen) list instruction. This has worked very well for us. Hope it works in your specific application.

As mentioned in the other answer, constructed lists allow you to provide specific instructions on how a list of answers should show up in a question, i.e. only show items that were checked in a previous questions.

You can read more about list building at www.sawtoothsoftware.com/support/issues/ssiweb/online_help/hid_web_listbuilding.htm.

Additionally, you can use custom Perl code if you wish to do something that our predefined functions (thinks like add if checked, add if rated greater/less than N, etc.) don't quite meet your needs.
