Grid Question


I need to design a grid question where we can select multiple answer by column and single answer per raw

For example:

In the columns I have:
1- SEC A
2- SEC B
3- SEC C
4- SEC D

and in raw i have

1 Brand A
2- Brand B
3- Brand C

So if we asked  SEC A and the respondent choose Brand A and Brand B he can't choose them again in SEC A and SEC B

Is your question direction set to rows or columns?  Does this question use checkboxes or some other input type?

it is columns and yes it is check box

Try out this custom JavaScript verification:

var rows = $('input[name="hid_row_list_[% QuestionName() %]"]').val().split(',');
var columns = $('input[name="hid_col_list_[% QuestionName() %]"]').val().split(',');

    var count = 0;
        if (SSI_GetValue('[% QuestionName() %]_r' + row + '_c' + column)) {
    if (count > 1) {
        strErrorMessage = 'error message text...';
