Just arrived on the list. 


I am about to construct a questionnaire on Epi-Data. Never worked with it before, but it seems to be quite straight forward simple, as long as the requirements are simple. 

However, for some years ago I was constructing similar questionnaire on the Paradox DB. It was possible to simplify the type work by cross tabulating.

e.g. Instead of typing the patients address, telephone number, and so forth, these data was auto-filled in the database that was linked to another database with the mentioned informations.


I create a medication questionnaire. As the patients normally knows the 'trade names', and I am interested in the 'generic names' (as many of you knows e.g. one of the most used pain killers acetaminophen exists as multiple brands). I have a database consisting of these two variables. 

It will be 100.000 times easier for the persons typing the questionnaires to type one of the brand names of acetaminophen and the generic name automatically will be filled.


Is it possible to create this lin on the Epi-data??
