Dear all 
It is true that test versions oé the new manager and entryclient are available from 
http ://www.epidata.dk/testing.php 
But it is also true that the new versions can be used for datasets with real data.  That is without relational structure. Any file which you download from the ordinary page : 
Http://www.epidata.dk/download.php is for routine use. 
If in doubt with any software - including epidata - always make a small test. But do so with a release version. Not with a test version.
