how can i insert a name not chosen in the previous question?

One of the beginning questions in my survey asks to the repondent to choose a name within 2 options. I'm using the command of [%label (QX)%] for inserting the selected/chosen name into the following questions' text but I need to insert the other name/Not chosen name into some of the questions as well. I appreciate any feedback regarding to if/how I can do it. (QX stands for the Question X.)
Thank you in advance.

You can create a constructed list using the list QX uses as your parent list.

The constructed list will look something like this ...


Lets call this list NameNotChosenList.

This list will store the "not chosen" name. It will only contain one name given we have only 2 names to begin with.

To refer to this name in future questions, use ...


This will display the 1st and only name from the NameNotChosenList.

That should do the trick.

I would use lists in this situation

List 1 = CHOSEN - AIC(QX)

In the question, use listlabel(chosen,1) instead of label(QX), and listlabel(notchosen,1) where you want to show the other name.
