Is it possible to use the Double Entry Verification tool on a relational


The related REC files are:

*         Infant health diary.rec (the "Parent" file), and

*         Infant health diary weekly record.rec (the "Child" file)


I created the double entry databases:

*         Infant health diary_dbl.rec, and

*         Infant health diary weekly record_dbl.rec


In "Infant health diary_dbl.chk" I edited the code for the relate
command so that the double entry file is linked:

RELATE idchild "Infant health diary weekly record_dbl.rec"


When opening "Infant health diary_dbl.rec" for entry, I'm not given a
warning stating that EpiData is in double entry verification mode. Is
there something else I need to do to make this work? If not, I realise I
can set up a second relational database and check for inconsistencies
once all the data's been entered.
