re: "invalid floating pint" error with DESCRIBE in Analysis

Please do the following:
1. Download the most recent testing version of EpiData Analysis:
2. Retry the same analysis
3. Report to the list if the problem persisted.
4. If the problem persisted:
   a. pack your data file in a zip file (e.g. with epidata entry - tools 
   b. report the error to the epidata mantis system
        and upload the zip file as part of the error report.
