[EpiData-list] Date-illegal entry

Thank you for your response to my date question.

During entry, if the date field is not applicable to a certain record
(whereas I do not need to enter a date for that specific record, rather
skip it) what do I designate as my skip code. I did have -77, but when I
would enter that, it would say it was an illegal entry.

How do I write the code, so that a skip is -77, and it still be a legal
entry in some instances?

legdat
  RANGE 01/01/1900 31/12/2008
  LEGAL
    30/12/2009
    24/11/2008
  END
END

(somewhere in there, I need to put it a skip code)

Thank you for your time, 

Lindsay

You cannot have illegal dates: 99, -77, 88 are not dates and if they 
were, they are not legal, there is no date that contains, e.g. "99".  A 
command for a legal date range and legal date values should look 
something like this (using European date format here):

legdat
  RANGE 01/01/1900 31/12/2008
  LEGAL
    30/12/2009
    24/11/2008
  END
END


Regards,

Hans

There is an example of this, based on the Danish CPR number on the 
Epidata web site: http://www.epidata.dk/examples.php
The example is in English & Danish, with an explanation in English.

You input the number as a single text field and then "take it apart" 
into its individual digits.
