EpiData does just what EpiInfo 6 was doing, more easily (Windows interface), and with extended check capabilities.
It does include an export-to-stata function, that (as far as I used it, which is pretty much) works fine.
As far as I'm concerned (and given the constraints of dealing with field persons who are not computer specialists -I did the same as you with MSF for a long time-), the answer to your question is 'Yes'!

QUESTION: I may be addressing a biased audiance, but Id like some reassurance that EpiData is the best way to go for capturing questionnaire data, which will then be transferred to STATA. I had started an EpiInfo database but then realized that it does not support double data entry...or at least not very easily.
