Thank you Rafael,

Sorry I just managed to look at the URL attached file and  used the
Stat/Transfer to import it as SAS or Stata file and the output is in
agreement of what you saw previously.

However, I will try it again using EpiC and get back to you.

Take care and get back to you on Tuesday or Wednesday when I can access the
computer.
