>> Hi Susan,
>>
>> In Epidata there are three main files associated to a data set:
>> QES the design of the layout and properties of the questionnaire
>> REC the data set itself
>> CHK the definition of check controls during tha data entry
>>
>> In order to Enter data you anly need two of them (REC and CHK).
>>
>> If you edit a QES file and update the REC using the revised QES your 
>> check
>> file will work if:
>> The name of the new REC files is the same as the name of the CHK file.
>> and
>> The names of the fields in the REC file have not been changed. For 
>> example
>> in the old file you have a field names SEX and you keep the same name in
>> the new version. However if you change the name of the field to GENDER 
>> the
>> CHK file will give you an error. (usually Epidata will ask you to display
>> where the erros are located, what will help you to fix the problems)
>>
>> I am not sure but I think there was an option in EpiData Entry to save 
>> the
>> CHK file ate the same time that you are updating a REC file from a QES.
>> Can some one comment on that?
>>
>> Hope it helps,
