Hi,

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?

Cheers,
Suzanna
