What you can do is:
a. use EpiData Analysis
b. merge the files one by one  based on the common (supposed) id
      (write "merge" in the command prompt and press f1, which gets you 
into the help file)
c. after merging all files, save to a common file (command: savedata).

d. if you then in the old epidata entry export that file to a stata file
e. now add the stata file to an epx project and you have retained all 
value labels.

In response to other recent mails I would suggest that if some answers 
are not immediately understood - ask again, but only after you are sure 
to have completed the introduction documents for the new Manager and 
Entry Client, which are installed with the software or you can get them 
from the download page.
