  Re: Is it possible to start Epidata Entry with "Enter data"

For a system like that I suggest to add to the chk file the following:

after file
  backup ..... see below
  quit
end

with the above, EpiData Entry will quit completely after performing a 
backup.

Further on the backup: (copied from the help file)
The syntax of the backup command is:
BACKUP distination-directory   or
BACKUP distination-directory [ZIP zip-file-name [DATE]]  or
BACKUP distination-directory [ENCRYPT name-of-encrypted-zip-file 
password [DATE]]

I usually prefer
BACKUP distination-directory ZIP zip-file-name DATE
