Compound questions: Limits
The number of questions that you can include within a compound question is limited by the fact that the answers are presented side by side across the page. Although UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper has not been built with any other limits regarding the number or combination of questions that you can include in a compound question, in practice there might be a limit to the complexity that UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper can handle. This is particularly likely to be true when you are using UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper/Scan Add-on as well. However, UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper and UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper/Scan Add-on are known to be able to handle the following combinations of average-sized questions in a compound question:
two or more categorical questions
two or more grid questions
one categorical question and one grid question
one categorical question and one numeric grid question
one categorical question, one grid question, and one numeric grid question.
However, Word cannot handle more than about 500 UNICOM Intelligence masked controls on a single page (the actual limit depends on the computer’s resources). This limit is usually reached only if you are using masked controls in your numeric grid Looks and you have one or more very large numeric grid questions on a page.
