Can I set a default value in the matrix radio button?Asked by Ahurley24 on May 14, 2016 at 09:01 AM

Hope that helps. Thank you.
is there a way to to do this once in the code and copy it across so that each name defaults to the N/A? Since there are over 100 names it is time consuming to find each and add the code.
I have attempted to edit the code as you suggested. I cannot go in and edit the code nor can I copy and paste the code of edited in word. I am at a loss as to how to add the attribute u identified.
You need to open the HTML file to a text editor like Notepad++. Please don't open the code in Word program.
Unfortunately, you need to add that code on each item in the matrix table under the N/A column. You can hire a programmer that can help you create a script for that function if you like.
