This is to complex for my users. I think it would be easier if I "merge"
all 7 rec-sheets to one epx-sheet. Do I understand that right?

I am not sure if I understand you right, but I think I don't need this
step. EpiData is only for entering the data and to export it to Stata.
That is all. EpiData will never touch this data again.

My goal is to make the 7 old rec-sheets work much as easy as possible in
the new version.

But to understand the process much better I need the old EpiData from
2005 to look how the rec-files-stuff behave.

I see your point. I though this converting think is much easier. But I
have to tell my boss that it will cost much more time to bring this
project up to date. ;)
