Hi, i'm a new user of epidata, but already familiar with epi6. This is my
first time replying to an inquiry, and hope to provide some tips or at least
initiate an idea to solving an inquiry.

To change the color of a field, a noenter or otherwise, you can have it
defined at the beginning of a check file using the BEFORE FILE command,
specifying the name of a field, and the color you want:

BEFORE FILE
COLOR vname color

(i'm out in a field right now,  i do not have access to my own pc, just
using an internet cafe pc without epidata, so i can not provide more details
on the command.)

Thanks. . .
