I'm afraid that you've found an error in EpiData. When using INCLUDEd files
i the check-files, the reported linenumbers are meaningless. The INCLUDE
files are inserted into the checkfile before parsing the checkfile, so the
reported linenumber is an aggregated number. But the user cannot use the
aggregated linenumber to anything.

This bug is added to the list of things to look into in the next build of

Subject: [EpiData-list] Check file line numbering


1. I have a .CHK which has 473 lines
2. there are several include.txt files in the check code
3. when I want to do data entryI'm told there is a error in the .CHK
And do I want ot see 'them'..... I answer yes

4. the split screen appears with the .CHK on the left and the "offender"
Section on the right
5. the line numbers in the right screen have nothing to do with the line
Numbers on the left....as far as I can tell.
6. for example:  "unexpected end of COMMENT LEGAL line 253
Followed in next line "Unknown command (end) in line 254
7. where did these line numbers come from?
8. at the point where the include occurs is line 13 and
9. the included file has 63 lines
10. any ideas???

Thanks, kelly
