This setting is available in the multiple numeric and numeric array input questions. When this attribute is set, the input value(s) (depending on the type of question) must meet this criteria - the (sum of) number(s) has to be smaller than the value you type in this box. Otherwise, the respondent will not be able to submit her answer.

**Valid values**

- Any integer value above 0
- Any number
- Any SGQA code
- Any question code (variable name)
- Any equation, using ExpressionScript syntax, without surrounding curly braces.
