Dear Dr Thambu
To my knowledge, the Epidata Manager is still at its test version. So, it's better to use the existing Epidata Entry (or Epi Info) for your research data until Epidata Manager work properly. You can get documentation at http://www.epidata.dk.

It is true that Epiinfo 6 would read a .rec with some errors, the type of error you describe will probably prevent you from getting the data you want out of the .rec file.

This problem usually arises because a file has been edited and some record lengths changed or from the introduction of some random characters with a disk error. I have always been able to reconstruct .rec files using a plain text editor like the old Windows Notepad. Even better is a programmer's editor (there are many) that can identify the end of each line in case you have a line with more than 80 characters in the data section (e.g. some spaces beyond the !).

The new software has been released for general use. There are also test versions available, so be sure to use the "stable release" for real work. This is the version you get at the top of the download page.

In addition to the brief manuals available on the download page of epidata.dk, I prepared a short tutorial for a course last year. It was pretty simple as I just wanted the class to understand what the new Manager and Entry Client would look like.
