I think both SPSS and SAS are able to read/import Stata data files. I
have used this for importing data to SPSS.

Since SAS is not supported anymore by EpiDataManager, i would need to get the 2.9 version where it was still supported OR I would know if it is possible to get a .rec file from the .epx as we have a utility to convert from .rec to .sas
Could you send me a link with the corresponding version?
BTW, I understand the decision of saying goodbye to SAS and SPSS but wouldn't that close too many doors for the project? Everyone is not using Stata.

Dear Epidata Team,
I was wondering if epidata entry can be used in mobile devices like
ipad or android tablets.
I noticed someone asked about this in 2012, but i couldn't find an
answer for that subject.
Is it possible?
Thank you very much for all your work.
Dear Epi-Data team!
If you intend to change to a new Valuelabel (eg change name of the
valuelabel and add a new value) in manager and do this via "Edit" and
changes the name of the old label and add a value, then all variabels in
the project get the new valuelabel.
You have to do like this: "Edit", choose "none", then "Apply". Then
choose "New" and make the new valuelabel. But when doing this I get
"Access violation" error message.
I think the access violation error is a problem with the type UPPERCASE
which do not allow that you create valuelabels.

Dear Epidata users,
Apologies if this has been asked before but I could not find the answer in the archive.
I knew how to do an IF and THEN command in the old version of Epidata. I am now using version 18.104.22.168 and am stuck. I can perform a skip based on the field I am on (in 'field 'properties' in the 'jump' tab). But how do I do a skip based on a previous field? i.e. at the end of a section entering personal information I want to skip to one of several subsequent sections depending on what was entered in one of the early fields of personal information, not the last one in the section.
I hope my query is clear.
In the decisions of development we need to focus at all times to :
a. simplify interface,
b. create structured and easily understandable terminology
c. adaptation to many combinations of users, computers and local
language implementations of texts etc.
In order to do so we will attempt to be more precise in terminology
1. We plan to use these definitions:
project: all information contained in a given epx file
dataset: contains all variables in a single entry form
observation: is the data unit observed (formerly called a record)
variable: contains a single data entity (formerly sometimes called
variable label: the descriptive text for a variable
value labels:define legal values and gives a text for each value
Any legal value can be given the "missing" status and exported
If you have related data (e.g. house -> person -> visit) each of these
will be a dataset containing a number of observations recorded in those
variables present in a given dataset.
We will implement a "non case sensitive" principle.
That is v1 and quest1 will be the same variables as V1 and QUEST1. H1
and h1 as a header text will be the same. But obviously the variable
labels and header text can contain as well local language characters and
any upper/lower case text.
EntryClient will get a "save as" possibility in the file menu, since
sometimes we have experienced that a network drive was lost during
entry, e.g. Z drive: - then any changes was lost since last save
because there would also be no timed backup residing on that drive.
We will consider whether to implement a timed backup up principle in
manager, just like there is one now in entryclient.
If connection to the network is lost or the software brakes down, the
timed backup file can be used after restarting Manager.
We will implement a missing value definition for dates and jumps based
on date values.
Please comment on the these aspects if you have ideas, suggestions, find
the terminology confusing or have other examples of different
terminology across Analysis, EntryClient and Manager.

Unfortunately the version (22.214.171.124) of Manager had a bug in Windows, which we did not catch before release.
Therefore please download and install the version 126.96.36.199, which was just uploaded.
We will gradually be more strict in applying quality assurances before release, but sometimes this could result in 1-2 weeks delay of a bug fix version due to limited staff. Users who wish to assist in the quality assurance release program can send us an e-mail on info at epidata.dk
We apologize for the inconvenience incurred by this and thank Mr Thambo for the reporting.

A new version of EpiData Manager (188.8.131.52) has been released for
The new version contains a fix only related to linux, where moving
fields no longer worked correctly. Hence if you are using EpiData
Manager on Windows or Mac, there is no need for updating if you have the
previous version (184.108.40.206) installed.
The updated version can as always be downloaded from our website:
