Dear friends:
I was working with Epidata Analysis module. I guess I did solve the 
problems. The first was with dates - the year format was abreviated in the 
original data. I used these data in training students and it was common to 
use them with Epi Info for DOS analysis where it worked fine. The problem 
was solved when I did correct the date to yyyy format. The second problem I 
do not understand. I was working with fields named weight and height and 
trying to calculate IMC.  The return I did obtain was that the data did not 
match or that weight was inadequate. I transformed both fieds to portuguese 
using the following sintaxe:
Define peso ##.##
Peso = weight
Define altura ###.##
altura = height
Then IMC formula worked properly.
I am including the files as attatchment to this e-mail including the pgm 
file. The problem ocurred in my notebook, my desktop and in the desktops of 
the students at the laboratory (with windows XP and windows 98, 
respectivelly). I tried again just before sending this e-mail with the old 
file againl and it worked propperly. Sorry for the inconvenience.
