Hello JENS and ALL,

While testing this I got a message when I tried to read a DBF file, it says that it is a corrupted 
ZIPfile !!   In true it is a perfect DBF file made by EPIDATA 3.1.

Reading TXT, CSV, REC, QES files works perfect.
 Shifting the fields on the screen with the mouse : OK.

Would appreciate more explanation about the SETTINGS, not all clear to me.

A possibility to change the type of an already existing field would be nice..
I add a recxml file that contains some remarks.
 Yours, Louk.
