After thinking about it, permissions can’t be the problem. You can open the file in EntryClient. 
Errors in the actual project file should cause a problem with both programs.
You could try to import the project in Manager (File, Import) to see if that clears anything up.
There should be no limit on number of sections, but I have not done any testing with a large number of sections in a project. They are mostly cosmetic, but Manager has to keep track of them all...

Subject:  [EpiData-list] Access violation message- still unable to open	database  

Yes there was a lock file in the folder, even though the database was not open in either manager or EntryClient. I have deleted this. Now when I try to open the database in Manager it skips the message 'this file is locked by another program' etc, instead going straight to the Access Violation message. 

I've used the 'Prepare for double data entry' function, but the _double database file also will not open. 

Any idea how I can adjust the permissions on the file? (On either Mac or PC as it won't open on either). 

Seeing as I can open it in EntryClient is there any way I can save this database through Entry Client and get it back to a new Manager file?
