After a long period I could finally make a complete test form in epidata 126.96.36.199.
The way I want to work is open data entry, type in some data while in consultation with the patient, after entry copy to clipboard, paste into medical chart, edit medical chart and print the filled form.
Like this, it is pretty obvious that somethings in data entry may not be appropriate to be in the madical chart and some things that should be in the medical chart will not be necessarily in the form, for istance the patient initials, and additional medical information respectively.
Few things came by.
Several times while open data entry and data manager the form Headings, which identify the form, disapeared and appeared again. Currently only part of the headings are being shown during entry and at printed version.
I have a three page form, and I would like to have the key fields: for instance patient number and patient initials at the top of each page. However the key field can not be replicated. I had to make diferent field and to clone the questions, but in fact they have to be different variables, is it possible to make the key fields to appear at the top of each page?.
During entry, sometimes the pick box does not appear even if the show pick box is ticked at the variable settings, very rarely though.
Sometimes the section headings do not appear in the printed version of the form with data .
Even after saving the work and closing the file, later when closing the data manager, a warning comes by about leaving and not saving the last modifications.
Occasionally, when opening a file data manager comes with a warning about a backup file more recent the the original file itself, even if the original file is older then the bak file.
When I copy to clipboard the content of a complete record and later paste at a .txt file the last six fields come in the top and then the correct order of the fields start.
I suppose if I send you the file you will be able to test once more and try to reproduce these stuff, what is the most appropriate way to send the file?
