  1. Relationships

    When I merged the two projects that I referred to, the "bio" tag replaced all the "natural" ones. Thank you Michael for the information
  2. Relationships

    Thank you, Jim. Very kind of you to reply so quickly.
  3. Relationships

    Can anyone tell me the difference between son-bio and son-natural please? I am about to merge two files. One says Son-bio, one Son-natural. The newer one (natural) has been created from a gedcom, but, initially, on an earlier version of TMG, so had the original. Will this make any difference to the merged file?
  4. Merging projects

    Has anyone ever seen "the structure of the project is invalid. Please contact technical support" Contacting technical support does not get any help. I have an existing project with nearly 30,000 names. I try to merge a small file (the latest example having around 600 names). The error message appears. The new project has been created by importing a gedcom file. I have made some changes to places but that is about all. I have been getting this problem since upgrading to version 8
  5. Database merge

    Repeated the message with another attempted merge - same target database, new source database
  6. Database merge

    I ran into the same issue trying to merge two small (200+ and 1100+ people) projects. I had the larger project open and was trying to merge "B" (the smaller) into "A" and got the error message. On a whim, I closed the project and opened the other and tried merging what was then "A" into "B" and it seemed to go fine. I can't explain it but you may wish to give it a try. Thanks will try that. Didn't merge the focus group properly!

  8. Database merge

    Trying to merge 2 projects - one recently converted from V7, one created by gedcom import On clicking OK to merge I get the message: The structure of the project is invalid. Please contact technical support. (I have emailed support, but thought I might get a faster response here) I have run the file integrity check on both projects with no errors.
  9. Preferences - Display Surname in Caps

    Thanks Terry, that is what I feared.
  10. Dates on married names

    If you want to use John's Utility to add married name tags with dates, you can first use it to remove all the existing ones to avoid the duplicates. But, why do you want dates on them? I much prefer to have them stacked at the top (or bottom) of the tag box, out of the way of actual events. Michael, Terry - thank you for those suggestions, I will try them, looks good. Good question, Terry, I dunno! It looks neater to me, I guess. Maybe I won't bother any more.
  11. Focus Group to New Project

    The export option gives you the option to export everyone in a focus group. Is this what you meant?
  12. Dates on married names

    Thanks Michael, but the import already creates the tags, it just does not apply a date to them. The utility would, I believe, merely replicate the tags, leaving me to manually delete the undated ones.
  13. When I create a new project and import data (typically a gedcom) the Preferences defaults to Display Surname in Caps. In my live projects I always turn off this option, and notice that help recommends this also. Is there a way I can force the Caps off option on imports?
  14. When importing a gedcom file, a Name-Marr record is created for women who are recorded as being married. I would like to be able to add the date to this tag from the marriage date where it is present. Is this something that I can automate?
  15. Merging and focus groups

    No, not as far as I can see - that does not fit in with my understanding of what is happening. In the above example, 349 will remain in the group, but the number decrements. As it is a large group I have no way of telling whether: a) a name has been deleted which name it is. Thanks for the reply - it makes sense and explains that part.
