Disable users from selecting same choice twice?

    What I'm trying to do is have users rank something (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc...) and want to make it so they don't accidently select two different options for 2nd place or 3rd place, for example.

    What I want is for each item to have a unique answer, and be repeatable. If a user has already chosen their "2nd Place," I don't want them to be able to select 2nd place for something else.

    Make sense? Is it possible to do this?

    Thank you!!

    It's 13 now, next week it will be 12, and so on. Basically the last place rank gets elminated, and then there's a new round of voting.

    Thanks for your help!

    fxr,

    Thank you for your response! Your example makes it much easier to see what you've voted for. I was using a drop-down and that can be confusing.

    I will use the matrix form instead.

    Thanks again!

    FXR, Could you share what your other solution would have been if the choices were limited to 6 or less choices?  I am currently using the matrix, but it does allow surveytakers to make duplicate rankings.  

    Thanks for any help!
