The command "jumps reset value", e.g.

Q14
   TOPOFSCREEN
   JUMPS RESET 9
     55 ENDNOTE1
   END

will do:
after entry in field q14 EpiData will check "Is q14 = 55" if so then jump 
to field endnote1,

but before "landing in endnote1" : RESET all numerical variables from Q14 
to ENDNOTE1 to  missing ("." or  "").
and furthermore : RESET 9 : fill all variables from q14 to ENDNOTE1 with as 
many 9's as the width of each field.
      That is if you have a field of width 2 the value will be 99, a field 
of length 10 will be filled with all 9's.

So you cannot do: jumps reset 99. Only one digit is allowed, but the 
variables passed with the jump will get 99 if these fields are of width 2.
