Sorry, but I don't understand that. While importing ("add structure") a
rec file into a EpiData Manager Project there is no option like that.
And how do I "assign" default values again. Of course I missunderstand
something. But if there are default values in the old rec files (that I
don't know!) the import function should import them by itself.
What is my job there?

What do you mean with "that one"? The current new version?
Of course I have it. But it doesn't help me with my problem.

Of course I know that. I don't want to use it produtivly. I just want to
load the rec-files and see how they behave. I haven't created the
rec-files. I am not the author. There is no concret doc about it, so I
have to test the rec-files in there own environment to see how they
behave and what is missing while import to the new epx-format.

Sorry I don't understand what do you mean. What is the "chk-rec-qes
principle"? I need to use it? Why? How?
I never copied rec-files. There are rec-, chk- and qes-files in the same
directory. I only imported ("add structure") the rec file in the
currrent Project Manager. Should the Manager see byitself that there are
qes- and chk-files present in the directory?

So I ask again. How can I get the old version? You should have it
somewhere in your archive. Minimaly you should have the sources in your
versioning system.

Thank you very much
Christian Buhtz
