Dear EpiData lister,
I am entering longitudinal data into EpiData, is it possible to have a
variable 'visit' that will have new number every time I enter new
record for the same patient?
Then it will start from beginning with number when i am entering new patient?
example below

id               visit
--               -----
1001          1
1001          2
1001          3
1001          4
1001          5
1002          1
1002          2
1002          3
1003          1
1003          2
1004          1
1004          2
1004          3
etc..

Thank you in advance and best regards
ziad
