	Objet: [EpiData-list] Field definition error

	Hello again!
	I sent past message related to "field definition error in line 640" message.
	I tried to retype the QES form. So each five questions, I switched the
	QES file into REC file and did "checks" for it.  I kept doing the same
	procedure, and I passed the line 640.
	Later on, the message showed up again, and please note here that I was
	at line 1007, which means EpiData read line 640 already before and there
	was no problem.
	What happened now? Help!!
	Thank you and best regards
