You are absolutely correct, once a duplicated number is entered, it will pop up "Number already exists, do you want to go to record?????

As long as you type "key Unique 1"

A Key Unique number can be altered if it was entered by mistake but if you select the ID as AUTO select, then that number which is generated by the computer can not be altered.

Pedro:

Am I incorrect in opinionating that actually KEY UNIQUE gives you all answers as well, that an identifier value is already in existence and in which record it is and allowing you to go to precisely that previous record.

Hello all,

I tryed to install Epidata in Ubuntu today and it seems to work fine at first. I looked at the web page and old messages at the list but latest one were from 2004. The installation looked pretty simlpe with wine already installed. Just click on it and wine seems to do the rest. Choose the directory as in windows .... press continue...

At first it seems a little weird ... the installation and the program were not in portuguese but in english. There is a lot of violations errors when opening and closing files and sometimes epidata just dont open the files.
Some simple commands in windows such as Ctrl+Z dont work.

I try to import a simple dataset from a csv file with 6 variables and 45 observations and the same error did not allow me to complete the import....
the ID variable is not compatible. The ID variable was a number from 1 to 45. I try even to delete some variables eand most of observations to make it simple but it didnt work out.

Does anyone have recent experiences with Epidata in Linux? Good or bad?

I saw an earlier thread on the list suggesting a date time variable in epi analysis or the option to show two variables such as day and hours in an epicurve. I would find this very helpful as for an outbreak I was asked to produce an epi curve, preferably grouped in 3 hourly lots, but certainly showing both date and hour of onset on one graph. 

The outbreak data was entered into Epidata and as Epidata doesn't have a datetime field information about when people first became sick was stored in two different fields - onsetday (a date field) and onsettime (a numeric field entered as a 24 hour clock). There are three different onset days and a range of onsettimes in each day.  I couldn't think of a way of putting both pieces of information on one graph in either epidata analysis or epi info (though in epi info you can group the hours and it will make you a different graph for each day), so finally I exported the data to Excel, grouped the data manually and then graphed it that way. 

Does anyone have a better suggestion about how to make an epicurv that includes both date and time information?

thanks

First to say how great the outbreak analysis option is in Epi analysis.  Instead of slowly cutting and pasting or copying information from a whole series of 2 by 2 tables as in Epi Info as I used to, I can now quickly create an attack rate table with for all exposures of interest including not just attack rates in the exposed and unexposed, but relative risks, p values and confidence intervals though that one command. I am helping analyse an outbreak at the moment and it has saved me lots of time, thank you very much. I am still learning about working with the output though, so what I am interested to learn from others is if you are using epi analysis attack rate output table in reports written in microsoft word and if so how. I was asked to provide the table in a version that could be incorporated in a write up about the outbreak to be written in MS word . 

My method was to
1. open microsoft word
2. chose insert file (making sure all files option was selected)
3. Insert the epianalysis htm file containing the table
4. Use table/select table and autoformat/grid 
5. Do a small amount of re-formating
This resulted in a table that looked OK in an MS word document - but is there a better way to do it?

Also how do you change the default filename and path from EAoutput.htm to something else?

I have another question about the epicurv but will email separately

thanks

It would be good to form a kind of "EpiData Linux group" -

I have allocated some of the development funding for getting into "linux".

This is expected to start mid 2008. If we are to be succesfull it is of 
utmost importance, that some key users in each operating system will 
take part of the testing etc.

Therefore the question yesterday on experiences comes in very handy, 
since the experiences will be part of "how and what to consider", when 
converting EpiData Entry from a "windows only" to a "multiplatform 
software".

I would love to test a version of EpiData on Linux.  I use Kanotix, a
Debian-based distro.  Sadly, I have no coding skills to contribute.
