Please, does any body understand whether this ("market ID*100+shop ID")  is a command or not?
If it is a command, what exactly would it achieve or do?
Thanks,

It it not an EpiData command, but looks like part of the syntax to create a single variable that identifies a particular shop:

msid = marketID*100 * shopID

Note - no spaces...

Say market ID is 3 and shop ID is 25.

Then the code for the market/shop combination is
3 * 100 + 25 (3 times 100 plus 25) = 325

Of course, this only works if the IDs are numbers.

Hi Pihilipp,
Not to difficult:
Revise the qes file with the new variable
Next time you open the rec file it will notice that the qes file has 
changed (must be in the same directory) and will offer to update the rec 
file. Accept this - no data are lost
If neccesary you can then also revise the chk file with relevant info 
about the new variable.
Voila.
Kind regards
Claus Holst
