Thank you all for the help you offered me... However, i have not
managed to get around my problem.
It seems that Jens Lauritsen did not understand my real issue and Hans
explained that i did not exactly specify the error i received. Here is
what exactly happens.

Am using Windows 7 Professional (32 bit) and Epidata analysis 2.2.1.171.

I read the rec files well, and the commands execute well .... but the
problem comes when i open the Editor. After writing my code in the
editor and try to run (whether Run selected or Run all), it brings
this error "Cannot create file
"C:\Users\Edson\AppData\Local\Temp\TMP9C60.Tmp". The process cannot
access the file because it is being used by another process",

When i try again, the error still comes but the TMP***.Tmp file keeps
changing... However if i keep trying to run (whether Run selected or
Run all), it final executes and brings my analysis..

When i tried to check online i came across this post
(http://lists.umanitoba.ca/pipermail/epidata-list/2010q4/001618.html)
which i highly believe had the same problem..

However in Jens Lauritsen's answer, he advises to correct the path
(see the link above) in the edit setup ini file.. I dont see where to
change that path in my ini file... below is how my ini file looks
like; what exactly do i have to change!

* EpiData Analysis default settings file
* Edit the next lines to change size or font
set echo=on

* Viewer font and size: (plus editor and help windows)
set browser font size =10
set graph   font size =10
set window  font size =10
set viewer font size =10
set editor  font size =10
set language=English
set viewer font name ="Verdana,Arial,Courier,System"

* uncomment next two lines to display Chinese Characters
*SET viewer font charset = "gb2312"
*set viewer font name="Arial Unicode MS"

**************************************************
* set options defined during installation:
**************************************************

* To see other set: issue "set" command or look in help file (F1)
**************************************************
set display variables=OFF
set display databrowser=OFF
set output open=ON
* set options defined during installation:
**************************************************
* Default folder defined as:
cd C:\Program Files\Epidata\TestData
set output folder="C:\Program Files\Epidata\TestData"
set language=english
set echo=ON



Thank you all
