Dear Hans,Sub - Fonts and Background (Actual thread title should be file conversion from rec to epx and relating the files)Using Analysis for relating rec files is a good option.A PGM can easily save the updated rec files to epx files and relate also.I could save two related rec files to epx files.When I issued the Merge command,Read &quot;D:\EpidataAnalysis0.9.0.0\FG\AgeSex2.epx&quot;;Merge FFNO !fn :=&quot;D:\EpidataAnalysis0.9.0.0\FG\FAMILY2.epx&quot; !Table;Following&nbsp; error message was dislayed;&nbsp;ERROR: External lookup table dataset &quot;ds1&quot; has a non-unique key combinationPlease use the integrity tool to get a complete list of non-unique valuesWhat is this integrity tool and how to get a complete list of non-unique values using this tool?.......................................................The following command is also not working.edit var sex !valuelabel := label_sex&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; !label :

Today we will give out a new experimental test version, where the check
command (data integrity test) is very efficient, e.g. to find duplicates
in a file

check key v1 v2 v3;

will tell which observations are duplicate in the combination of v1 v2 v3

In the new version colour of fonts and background is also working.

Dear all users

We have released next experimental version for testing, which you may
find from the page: Http://www.epidata.dk/testing.php

Many issues have been fixed since the latest public test in early
december. A complete list is found at the bottom.

In particular we have fixed and quality assured the data integrity
command: check data, check key, check relate

But also many other issues, e.g. colour control. These lines will turn
output and command line into yellow on black background.

set "COMMANDLINE BG COLOUR"?? := "#000000";
set "COMMANDLINE FONT COLOUR" := "#FFF000";
set "OUTPUT BG COLOUR"??????? := "#000000";
set "OUTPUT FONT COLOUR"????? := "#FFF000";

Many other aspects have been fixed, e.g. search and replace in editor in
windows.

Next in line is the implementation of tables command and a few more
issues in relation to data-management, which will then be announced as a
pre-public version.

Please do some testing  to
