Dear Epidata list,
I would appreciate very much if you can point me to a resource on calculated fields. I would like to:
1.  have a calculated field that adds the value of 12 other integer fields 2.  have a calculated field that is a proportion/percentage, using as source two fields Is that possible?
Thanks indeed for your help.
Jorge

Both are easy in classic EpiData. Is that what you are using?
In the EpiData Manager test version, you can also do this, but not in the most recent release.

I wrote this mail yesterday as you see below. The major problems are with the current test EntryClient module for download from Http://www.epidata.dk/testing.php

The mail below is a bit unclear about the bugs. The major problems relate to the EntryClient not to the Project Manager.

Obviously we have strengthened the internal test routines to include more samples. It is of course as well annoying and a "not so nice" stamp on our reputation to spend users time on testing faulty software. So apologies for that.

As users will have noticed there is a clear warning on the testing page saying that one should only work on copies of data with the test versions.

The task of simulating user behaviour before releasing a test version is not an easy one. For Analysis we have almost 2000 different asserting commands and statements, but have until now not been able to implement a "non-human" standardised testing sequence for EpiData Manager and EntryClient - apart from going through a number of tests and applications ourselves.

Despite the efforts spent in strengthening the internal test routines we still hope to release the new test versions within a few days. There will be updated versions of both EntryClient and Manager. And following that public release about two weeks later unless the testing period reveals major problems.

Rather soon - following the next public release we will clarify the aspects tested and how our test files are. Users are encouraged to upload test projects to the bug tracking system, which you find at this

I have a workaround solution for the Mac. I posted it, but it may or may not get through. 
That solution should appear on epidata.dk shortly or you can send me a note and I'll forward it directly.

Send the request to webmaster (at) learnph.ca
