I think there is an issue whether EpiData , once it applies the *.chk file, truncates the *.chk file at 64Kb even if it was larger (because it was written in an other editor ).
I am unsure whether it truncates or not. 
You should test it before relying on writing a longer one.

Hi;
CHK files can be edited with any text editor, provided the syntax is respected.
I'm using metapad (freeware, can be download at http://www.liquidninja.com/metapad/). It's small and very powerful.

Hello,

I have encountered a problem with the size of my check file.  I need to exceed the limit of 64Kb to include all the checks I want.  Is there a way to get around this limitation?  The manual says that "File size for CHK or QES files cannot exceed 64Kb in size if you work in the editor with that file."  Is there another place to work in other then the editor?  Any help is appreciated!
