I have two questions.

1. Does the Demographics dataset require a "Visit Id" column?

2. How do I insert a row into Demographics? I don't know what to put for "Date". It states: "Could not convert value: 1"

Hi Marcia,

You do not have to add a Visit Id column to a demographics dataset. If your study is a visit-based one, it will automatically be inferred.

To insert a new row into any dataset, list, or most tables, just click the "+" symbol and select "Insert New Row".

For "Date", you need to put in a valid date in the format of MM-DD-YYYY since it is a date field.

A lot of this information is explained in our docs and tutorials on studies:
