It seems the longest acceptable line is 204 characters. You can create 
and save longer lines using File,Open and choosing the checkfile, but 
EpiData 3.1 would not interpret the rest of these long lines for me. You 
can always break a formula down into smaller lines. Shorter lines are 
also better for documenting your calculations.

    f1 = a + b + c + d
    f1 = f1 + e + f + g
