How are you trying to download the data? Are you using Data Viewer?

Note that the data storage format has changed from CSPro 7.4 to CSPro 7.5. If your interviewers are using Android devices that automatically updated to CSEntry 7.5, then you must use CSPro 7.5 to download the data.

Are you sure they have CSEntry 7.4? Unless you turned off automatic updating, the version may have automatically moved to version 7.5.

If you confirm that they are using version 7.4, can you send your sync.log file to cspro@lists.census.gov. Here are instructions for finding the log: http://www.csprousers.org/posts/2017-08 ... cspro.html
