Dear EpiData friends,

I have a qes like this

days NUMBER OF DAYS WITHOUT MEDICINE IN THE PERIOD ##

However the ones who filled the CRFs filled this with -1 if there was no
information about this question.

Now Im testin the entrys to start feeding the datasets and just realize that
-1 is not a legal integer for field #

I thought that converting this field from # to <A > would work and later in
the analysis to encode this variable to integer.

WOuld this work? any more elegant workaround?

Best regards,

Abraço forte e que a força esteja com você,
Pedro Emmanuel
