I'm sure this has been asked before, and on the website all I can find
is "tests on linux ongoing using wine emulator". Any further details?
A mini-howto on how to give it a try, problems, plans, whatever?
I've also not found much on "epi6 (enter as in enter.exe) on Linux".
Some people have tried it with dosemu and possibly dosbox but, again, I
haven't been able to find information on how to do it. (I've tried it
myself with some problems with the cursor and how the epi604es.exe
uncompresses itself onto c:\, not creating \epi6 or \netss.)
I don't know what finally happened to the idea of CDC releasing (as
public domain or free-software of whatever flavour) whatever portions
of Enter.exe they can release. I think there was a problem with some
un-releasable libraries or something like it. Is that the same case
In time, what I'd really like to see is something as good (simple to
use, flexible, and powerful) as EpiData on Linux. I don't know how far
we are from that, if help could be looked for or organised somehow, or
I have written an epi6.py so as to READ, SELECT, FREQ, TABLES (2
dimensions), SUMFREQ and SUMTABLES (well, sort of) from a Python
script. Of course some knowledgable experts will do it using R, but
I'd like my scripts to be as cross-platform as Python itself. I
haven't made it public (for lack of expertise on how to do such a
thing) but it's available for anyone who wants it.
I've looked into other tools for creating questionnaires, and there's
this OIO project using Zope, but that's overkill for small outbreaks
and simple (as in simple data) research.
Epi6 and EpiData are simple excelent tools in my opinion. Thing is, I
don't like to be dependant on any one operating system if I can avoid
Thanks for the great program. I know one shouldn't ask for more unless
one is ready to offer one's own effort.

I would like to export a .rec file in Excel (or anywhere) using as a filter variable a
date variable (for the moment I can just do it for numeric variables).
For example , select all cases with date >20/07/2004.
Is this possible?
Thanks in advance
Is it possible to include 2 ranges in variable field of a chk file?

I'm having a problem defining text-fields having maximum width of 80
positions. What I do is the following:
1) start EPIDATA
2) click on "Define Data" and then on "New .QES file"
3) type a single line of 80 underscores _
4) push Ctrl-T to preview the Data Form
and then there appears a single text-field on the new data form, having a
width of 80 as intended, but of only the first 56 positions are visible.
Once these 56 are all filled in with some arbitrary text, typing the 57th
character etc. results in scrolling to the left of the already entered
text-string. So, the field is indeed 80 positions wide but only 56 of these
are visible at a time. What can be wrong here? Thanks for any help!
I need to create a database with approximately 900 fields and 1900
observations. Can anyone foresee any problems with doing this in
EpiData? I'm aware that all fields must fit within 999 lines of
text. Adding headings and spacing between some lines could easily take me
beyond 999 lines of text. Presumably I can have 2 or 3 fields on some
lines in order to remain within the 999 limit?

I have created a rec file and would like to save it with a different name
without losing the file structure and the check file associated with the
original file. Please advice
