Hello everyone

Just to share my experience with you.
As you know I had a problem reading my rec file in epidata analysis.We
finally solved the problem after my colleague went through all the records
(1065) in excel sheet. We found that one numeric field was initially
entered in a wrong way, something that epidata entry accepted it when we
imported the data from excel into epidata.

Thanks all for your suggestions, help and time
Mohammed
