It is not a bug, DATE is a reserved name, you cannot use it as a field 
name.  Furthermore, there is nothing like "## ## ###" for a field 
definition, the definition for dates is <dd/mm/yyyy> (if you choose 
European date format)

Hello,

I noticed a strang bug in Epidata Entry when I use the '-' sign to input=20
a MISSINGVALUE in a field.
I created three fields on one line to enter a date with incomplete value =
:
    Date ## ## ####
    Age ##
    Sexe #

In the check file I used the following
DATE
    MISSINGVALUE 99
END
DATE1
    MISSINGVALUE 99
END
DATE2
    MISSINGVALUE 9999
END
