We are building a data-entry system for the registration of medical contact for the youth in our organisation.
Therefore we need several hundreds of schoolcodes and zipcodes (postcode).

For the quality of data I want to use this data in the chk file in the following way.
In stead of:

LABELBLOCK
  LABEL_POSTCODE
  LEGAL
2234
2344
2544
2645
.
ETC
END

POSTCODE
  LEGAL USE LABEL_POSTCODE
  MUSTENTER
END


I want to use an externel file POSTCODE.INC
whith the data and used the following syntax:

LABELBLOCK
  LABEL_POSTCODE
  INCLUDE POSTCODE.INC
END


POSTCODE
  LEGAL USE LABEL_POSTCODE
  MUSTENTER
END

But I only get errors.

Someone has a solution?
