This may sound silly but I feel that I need to report this.

When I tried to do the double entry validation using one single file (i.e.
I selected one epx file twice for the purpose of validation), EpiData
Manager did not prevent me to do this. It produced a report which, of
course, has no discrepancy.

I tried this on both EpiData Manager (v1.5.0.10) and (v1.4.2). Both gave me
the same result.

Below is an excerpt of the validation report I just created showing
validation was attempted using the same epx file.

Report:  Double Entry Validation Report.
