Hello everybody,

I sometimes get an error message "Error reading record"
when I open an Epidata *.rec file. Sometimes it happens by
opening the whole file (I can't open it), sometimes only,
when I try to access the last entered record. When I export
a data file with this error message (i.e. to SPSS), all
records are exported correctly, nothing is lost (as far as
I can see).

I believe, that this error only happens with data files
that I received as email-attachments. Is it possible, that
sending *.rec-files by email "destroys" something in the
file structure? Any suggestions how to avoid this problem?

Thanks for help
