You can also do this from EpiData itself. On the Epidata menu, choose 
Tools, Copy Structure. This creates a new empty .rec and there is an 
option to copy the .chk as well. This is especially good when you don't 
want to change anythings. Then Tools, Qes file from Rec file to make a 
new .qes, or just open the .qes file, make your changes and save it with 
the name you used when you copied the structure. You can easily put them 
all in a different folder at the same time.
