TypeError: can only concatenate str (not "bytes") to str
i have not concatenated any string with a byte or number in the excel sheet form …
Any thoughts or ever encountered such ?
Can you please share the form so I can reproduce the error?
Also, what version of cht-conf are you using?
sudo python -m pip install git+https://firstname.lastname@example.org#egg=pyxform-medic to install

I’ve requested access to the form.
1.17 is the pyxform version. If you type
cht --version (or
medic-conf --version) you should get the version of the cht-conf tool you’re running.
If you have not solved this already, the error message
Invalid question name [ means that you have a question (name column of the survey worksheet) that starts with an invalid character that is not allowed. The error is thrown when you
convert-app-forms. Fixing the name should resolve the issue.
Update: Looking at your form (thanks for granting access), you have a question name
menatal _health that should not have a whitespace before the underscore. That is the cause of the error.
Let us know how it goes.
yeah thanks @kitsao ,
the whitespace before the underscore was the culprit
