The easy way to do this is to set the starting point for the <autoid> to 
say 1 for the first entry person and to 10000 for the next etc.. Then 
there would never be a problem.

The default starting for id numbers is set in options. Alternatively you 
can change it manually for the first record in each file and then 
distribute the files.

> Hi there,
> I have multiple data entry clerks entering data on different Epidata REC files. Because of data entry back-log I wish to get additional staff to enter data on the said REC files simultaneously. I have overcome this problem by "splitting" (more like copying the file REC to another terminal) the database REC file (with its CHK and QES) so that 2 staff could enter the data at same time. The problem is that when we assign a unique studyid, in say RECfile#1, RECfile#2 can't counter check if that studyid is being duplicated. Could someone show me how to share a common REC file for simultaneous data entry? I know Epidata can't be run through a network server, or linked to a server database, like MS SQL sever, or MySQL databases. If it can could you show me how to do this? or even place the REC files on the network drive and share them for data entry, is this possible? How?
