Yes, in the "checks" option, click on Edit, Type in "Key Unique " - save and this will prevent duplicates from being entered.

Dear EpiData lister, thank you for your kind reply for my previous query.

There is new question.
Can I have variable for ID numbers, called id, and to make sure the
value entered is unique to avoid duplicates during data entry?

Thank you in advance and best regards
ziad

Hello,


When creating a questionnaire, in the field pick list, in the "other" 
tab, select ID auto number
Alternatively in the questionnaire create a field with this specific 
field marker:  
<IDNUM>

Example
ID <IDNUM>


Best regards
Gilles Desve
