Hello, 
and thank you very much all of you;  Jonas, Hans and Zaw Myo Tun  for your kindness to give me advice on my question on "How to change the title of en already existing qes- and rec.file without loosing data".
I followed the instructions given from Jonas and it  worked ! I also did the same with the check.file that belonged to these qes and rec.files and it worked also.

Before i changed the title, I added 4 new variables to my qes .fiel and than I followed the instuctions in the Help file and Tools -->Revise DataFile.

Best regards
Susann Regber

Dear Susann:

"Title", "File Label" or "File name"?

Title: Change the title in the QES file, save the file, do not make a
REC file, but 4. Enter data, and you will be prompted to adjust the REC
file to the new QES file
Label: Read the REC file in EpiData analysis, and use the command
"labeldata", eg.  labeldata "My new label for the data file"
File name: Just rename both QES and REC file in Explorer.

Regards,

Hans

Hello,

I assume what you mean by "Title in qes and rec file" is what you
typed in .qes file from which .rec file was made. If so, you can
easily edit the "Title" in qes file as you want. Please be sure that
the field names and definitions are not changed. Then, revise the old
rec file with the newly edited qes file (by going to Tools --> revise
data file). By doing so, your data won't be harmed.

best regards,
