Popup Question Levels
Each popup level is two digits in length and can have a value of 01 to 99. There can be up to nine popup levels in a single popup selection file template. Each Popup Level indicates a dependent entry in a Popup file. Popup levela are used to sort and select data from a Popup Selection File.
Each popup field can be up to 30 characters in length with the first 10 characters being unique. A Popup Field holds information related to a specific Popup Level. For each Popup Level there can be up to nine different Popup Fields associated with it. The Popup Fields are used by P-popup variables to display selections and by L-lookup variables to display information for a specific Popup Level.
