It is quite easy to set up a system where information is converted based 
on input in a field

Look in the help file for EpiData Entry under "comment legal".

e.g.
qes:
v1  entered information _______________________
v2 converted information ________________________________

chk file:
v1
 comment legal
   AMA "Aminoacetophen"
   ABA  "Aminoacetophen"
    PC "Penicillin A"
    PC1 "Penicillin A"
 end

 type comment v2
end

v2
 noenter
end

if you enter "AMA" or "ABA" in v1 then the equivalent "AminoAcetophen" 
will be copied into
field  v2.

Kind regards and happy new year to all
