dear Epidata

when importing a STATA file into Epidata the value labels are incorporated
into the check file but the values are not set as legal values, so even if
you enter what F9 suggests you should, epidata keeps saying illegal entry.
So this is a problem when a STATA file with value labels is imported. Simple
to fix (just put in  legal value sin the check file)but not if you have a
large
file with many variables. Any advice?
