all the answers that you have received are right.

There is still one more reason why you can loose the data when trying to
change the QES file.

If you have used the option in EpiData to modify the name of the variables
directly in the REC file (tools-->rename fields), then when you make a
modification in the QES file no matter which way you use you will loose
your data as the names of the variables in the REC file do not match the
name of the variables in the QES.

Hope it helps
