Dear Kristine:

How about making use of EpiData Analysis to append files with the same 
structure:

close
erase "allcombined.chk"
erase "allcombined.rec"

copyfile "a.chk" "allcombined.chk"

read "a.rec"
append "b.rec"
append "c.rec"
append "d.rec"
append "e.rec"
....
savedata "allcombined.rec"
close
read "allcombined.rec"

Regards,

Hans
