Dear Epidata users

I am facing a problem transferring a field value from a parent file to a
child file.

In the parent file I have initial SRQ (srqinit) and I want the same value
to appear in the chiled file.

I did the following:
In the parent file
before file
Define Gsrqinit ## Global
srqinit
  MUSTENTER
  AFTER ENTRY
    LET Gsrqinit=srqinit
  END
END

In the child file
BEFORE RECORD
  srqinit=varsrqinit
END
 However, this doesn't seem to work. Your help will be most appreciated.

Mohammed
