EP183, EP184, EP187, EP188, EP189, EP190, EP191, and EP192 are all ready to be added to the system. Some of them are registered voters only, while some have separate adult and registered voter files. Like last time, most do not have keywords.

waiting for response from eagleton side.

1) I had problem with EP183, EP183rv, EP184, EP184rv por file. When I try to open with R and got the error message with: error reading portable file, character `\227' is not valid in a variable name.

After I removed the variables which are not used for generating report and it works fine. Please let me know if that is OK.

2) EP187, is missing LV1, LV4, LV5, LV6, LV7 variables in por file
EP187rv, is missing QD21, LV1, LV4, LV5, LV6, LV7 variables in por file
EP189rv, is missing QD2, QD3, QD6 variables in por file
Ep192 and EP192rv is missing QD21 variables in por file
For those missing variables, I can remove the quest id from poll or you need send me a new por file to include those variables.

3) EP191 and EP191rv, in excel quest id field is not allowed to have empty space with quest id. It should match the variables in both por file.

I have fixed this problems.

4)There are subject key words in some of the por files. I didn’t import them since we are going to use the new key words list soon.

In regards to these problems:
1) We went back and fixed the problem with that character for EP183, EP183rv, EP184, and EP184rv, and uploaded correct versions to Dropbox. Is it possible to re-upload these .por files? We'd like to have those variables that you deleted available in the downloadable dataset even if they're not being used in the report because they can be used to identify cases or where we did a question wording experiment.
2)We will look into this and get back to you.
3)That works, thank you!
Thanks for all of this--we should have more polls to send in soon.
