Dear all,  
I need to create a smallest datafile to work on it for logistic regression  
In EPIINFO6 it was very easy. the command was:  

route c:\data\preclog.rec  

write recfile chgt multi capot diaf foam withdraw cream depo rythm pil iud \  

precl \  


For epidata it is logopen "c:\data\preclog.rec"  

but after, write recfile does nor work in Epidata  

What is the process please?

Dear Omar Bautista:

In the new analysis, this would be the grammar if you would wish to 
append the four files a.epx, b.epx, c.epx, d.epx and to sa ve them to a 
new file abcd.epx that you can then use henceforth:

read "a.epx";
append !fn := "b.epx";
append !fn := "c.epx";
append !fn := "d.epx";

save "abcd.epx" !replace;

Best regards,
