  3. Changing tag type to another

    The TMG Utility for tags changes sort order or deletes them. Where is the facility to change them?
  4. Changing tag type to another

    Create the new tag type... Use TMG Utility to change the old tags to the new tag. https://www.johncardinal.com/tmgutil/
  5. I set up a custom tag called FSID to store FamilySearch IDs for my folks. Not being conversant with Tag types, I set it up as an address type of tag, and stored the ID in the Title field. I found out that the FS tag ID standard is FSFTiD, and that the Title field is usually for royalty. I'll deal with Title issues later. What I would like to do without re-learning FoxPro (if I can even find a copy to use), is to find all of the people I've added the FSID to (about 50 or so, which I can do in a report), add an FSFTiD tag, copy the value of FSID to FSFTiD, then delete the FSID. Not asking too much is it? I noted a comment by John Cardinal about 15 years ago that stated his utility could change tag types, but I just don't see that capability anywhere in the current version (7.4). I can do all of the above manually, of course, but is there any way to do it mechanically? Thanks.

  7. Strange Pop up Error

    Thank you for the info, there hasn't been any changes so I was not sure if something was happening.
  8. TMG 9.0

    Carolyn, Sent you a message. Jim
  9. TMG 9.0

    I cannot access my TMG files so as to create a GEDCOM. I want to transfer my database to Legacy. I can access the files to read only. Not sure why I can't get back into them Thank you, Carolyn Marks
  10. Strange Pop up Error

    This type is error is very difficult and not something that you can deal with directly. These are usually timing errors. The exact nature of a C0000005 error can only be determined in a development environment and only when the error can be replicated. Did you check the VFP9Rerr.log (if it even exists)? Have you made any recent changes to your system that could affect TMG? (exclude Windows updates because system updates will not cause this) Have you rebooted your system? That might help. You might close any other applications that are running (although background applications such as security and email clients should have no effect).
  11. Getting this crazy error all of a sudden....What to do?
  12. Terry, The person who responded said, " I expect many others will frown on this procedure," after saying, "I don't bother setting the config (and friends) files to be restored to a test folder, I just let them go to the original location(s)." Therefore, I wasn't sure whether it was the right thing to do. Thanks for the confirmation. Judy Madnick Albany, NY
  13. Judy, As explained when you asked this question on the TMG list last week, if it's a temporary restore to test the ability to make a restore, it doesn't matter. It only matter if you are intending to use the restore to enter new data.
  14. I was just about to do a restore to a temporary restore folder and noticed that I have to choose a folder to restore configuration files and timeline files. Should they also be restored to the temporary folder? I don't recall noticing this before. (IOW, I didn't pay enough attention!). My exhibits are all external, so they're not an issue. Thanks, Judy Madnick Albany, NY
  15. Michael - As you say, one can mostly figure out the first five fields. I feel the first few fields are degrees of consanguinity. However, I am insure, but think that there are different kinds of consanguinity (as defined by civil law and church law) and how the degrees are calculated. So. there may be subtle differences in the fields and what they mean. Lee
  16. Language Relationship Translations

    Lee, As you know, when this was asked on the TMG list I was unable to answer all of this. However from the examples the meaning of the hash (#) seems clear. Field one will have only one hash, field two will have two, etc. Then the output text will use the hashes as variables to output the "number" which TMG calculated for the field with that many hashes. And I would agree with your guess that these templates are only used if there is not already a template for that specific set of numbers in the fields, such as larger numbers of generations. At least that seems to be their purpose. As for the formula for the first five fields, one could probably figure it out by careful analysis of the examples. Michael
  17. In the group of strings beginning with Relationship in the Language file (Strings.dbf). there are some 1230 strings that seem to be in a certain format. A few of the strings are: Relationship (#/##/-1/####/#####/F/Short): #####ggranddaughter Relationship (#/##/1/####/#####/F/Long): 1st cousin #### times removed Relationship (50/49/48/1/-1/M/Long): 48th cousin 1 time removed Specifically, what are the values within the parentheses? The first three would probably be the number of generations, but what is the difference? The next two would seem to be related to the “removed” amount and the direction of the removal. The next would be the gender of the person. The last seems to permit both the long (verbose) and short (abbreviated) description of the relationship. Finally, those showing the “#” characters might be a provision for relationships beyond 50 generations. But, am I even in the right neighborhood on this? Lee
  18. TMG 9.0

    Just to note... This error occurs during the process of transferring the TMG data into the raw format used by the report engine to build the output file. I have no way to debug this process. You can output to a .DOC file for the Descendancy Narrative Report since this report is not form based. I wouldn't be surprised if you got the same error. You could also try a Journal report to either a .DOC or .RTF file. Be sure to run the maintenance routines (optimize, Validate File Integrity, optimize in that order) and, if necessary, run the installer and select [Repair].
  19. TMG 9.0

    When I try to create a descendancy narrative I get an error , and ends in Conversion error #20: Unknown error
  20. TMG 9.0

    Ken, Is your issue how to get reports to Word from TMG 7? If so, Jim's reply tells you how to deal with that. Or is your issue how to do a direct import from TMG to Legacy?
  21. TMG 9.0

    Is this the issue? From TMG 9 help... Note: If you are using Microsoft Word 2013, you should choose the Rich Text Format (RTF) file type to save the report rather than the Microsoft Word (DOC) file type. This tabular report is not compatible with the table structure used in Microsoft Word 2013. This applies to Word 2013 and later and .DOC files produced by TMG 7 and later. You may need to save your TMG reports as .RTF files rather than as .DOC files. Also note that you have a 30-day trial period after first running TMG9 that should be enough time to do the move to Legacy. btw... I see that Legacy 10 is finally in beta testing.
  22. TMG 9.0

    I am trying to convert to Legacy 9.0, unfortunately TMG 7 will not produce reports in MS Word. It only reads TMG v9 files. Is there any way to get TMG 9? Ken
  23. Missing Exhibits on reports

    I found the problem... image size was too big to embed ... I knew it was something I was missing, thanks Jim!
  24. Missing Exhibits on reports

    Just have "large" exhibits selected...
  25. Missing Exhibits on reports

    Different reports have different exhibit options. You've checked the report options on the Exhibits tab and selected the exhibit options that you want? I'm also assuming that you are not using images embedded in PDF files since these are not image files and can't be used as person and event images.
  26. I am starting to add photos to people and images for events, all external, so I can start using SecondSite. I know I'm missing something though as these photos/images are not appearing in any of my reports at the TMG level. I can see them in the Exhibits log. What am I missing please?
  27. "Variable Go Term Not found" msg in windows 11

    Yes. It was very helpful.
