Did you try to uncheck the option (files/options /advanced) 'Show errors that occur in calculations ...'
I noticed that it sometimes 'unblocks' checks that would otherwise either freeze the application or cause an unexpected behavior.

Objet : [EpiData-list] RE: Double Entry Record Advance problem isolated

After some troubleshooting, I found that this problem only occurs if the last variable of the instrument has range checking defined.  When I removed any references to the last variable in the check file, the records advanced properly in double entry mode.  However, this was at the expense of removing the error checking mechanism from a question.
Does anyone know of a workaround that would allow me to preserve error checking on the last variable without encountering this problem (short of changing the order the questions, which would confuse data enterers)...perhaps a way to hard code a record advance into the check file?

Subject: [EpiData-list] Records not advancing in verification mode

I've been experiencing some strange behavior with the new double entry feature in EpiData 3.1.

Here's what's happening:

After reaching the last field of a record in the double entry record file and clicking "yes" to save, the cursor immediately jumps to the first field of the record that was just entered and highlights it....instead of advancing.  In order to verify additional records, I need to manually advance to a clean record using either ctrl-N or the F8 shortcut key.  This happens consistently (100% of the time), on my WinXP machine.

Appreciate any help, perhaps a change in settings or checkfile that would bypass this problem?

- Thanks,
