Requiring minimum of 1 in each constant sum box if "Not Applicable" is NOT selected.

Is there a way to use this question as stated AND still require a minimum response of 1 in each constant sum option box if "Not Applicable" box is not selected? I assume this will take some custom Java, which I would really appreciate help with.

Try setting your constant sum to use this custom JavaScript verification:

var notApplicableQuestion = $('#[% QuestionName() %]_div').nextAll('.select').attr('id').replace(/_div$/, '');
var notApplicable = false;
$('input[name="hid_list_' + notApplicableQuestion + '"]').val().split(',').forEach(function(item){
    if (SSI_GetValue(notApplicableQuestion + '_' + item)) {
        notApplicable = true;
if (!notApplicable) {
    $('input[name="hid_list_[% QuestionName() %]"]').val().split(',').forEach(function(item){
        if (!SSI_GetValue('[% QuestionName() %]_' + item)) {
            strErrorMessage = 'my error message...';
