Hi amwilbon,

If I'm understanding you correctly, you want to not index the questions to the
survey, and simply index the answers. If the questions arent indexed by greenstone,
they won't show up in the search results.

It depends heavily on what form your documents are in, when looking at what
solution would be best. If your documents are in HTML, perhaps you could omit
the questions from the html, and add them as metadata to each survey document.
So you would build an index on the content of the html documents, which would
be indexed, and would be therefore searchable. You would display the questions
from the metadata of each document, if you wanted to display them in certain

Another way to achieve this would be in the way you present the data. You could
remove the questions from your import documents, and instead add them as macros
to your interface. So the questions would be displayed in your collection from
macros, and not indexed, and therefore not searchable.
