  1. Exporting Data to Excel

    If I recall, TMG exports one Excel file for each TMG data table; however, I hit an Open dialog error when I try it. Is doing that useful? Not that I can see.
  2. Why not just clear the view history?
  3. This is the "navigation" issue that was supposedly fixed many years ago. I don't have any ideas other than trying a clean install.
  4. I am using TMG V9.05 on HP laptop windows 10 and Microsoft Word 2019.  When I create a relationship report, screen view is fine.  However when I try to save it to Microsoft word, the program indicates it has successfully completed the report but upon opening it in Microsoft word, I get an error reading "A table in this document has become corrupted." How can I fix this.  If I specify RTF, the report opens with all the data but not pictures.

      Please post in the TMG9 forum where this belongs.

      You must output to RTF. The Relationship Chart is a form-based report using tables and the tables output by TMG to a .DOC file are not supported when opened by Word 2019.

      I suspect that you need to refresh the images in Word; however, I'm not using Word and can't give you specific instructions.

      Update... The only way that I've been able to get the Relationship Chart to output with images is to output to a PDF file.

  5. Undesirable Reminder

    File / Preferences / Program Options / Data Entry / unselect 'Open Reminder window automatically'
  6. Backup Recovery

    It sounds like your backup has the same data that you want to undo. Make sure that you overwrote the existing project when you did the restore and that you didn't restore to a different location.
  7. Backup Recovery

    As a first step, reboot your computer and try the restore again.
  8. Exclusive access

    Does any real-time backup or syncing application (Dropbox, OneDrive, etc.) have access to the project? You should not allow that to occur. Sometimes, after closing, TMG continues to run in the background. Check the Task Manager and close any running TMG process or reboot your computer. Then try to open TMG and the project again.
  9. TMG to the Bitter End

    RootsMagic has been able to do a direct import of TMG data sets since the fall of 2014 (RootsMagic v6.3.2.0). Many fixes and improvements have been made since the initial release. Family Historian has also been able to do a direct import of TMG data sets since the fall of 2014. Again, many fixes and improvements have been made since the initial release. Family Tree Maker and Legacy had direct TMG imports but both had many issues that were never resolved as far as I know. The current version of FTM no longer does a direct TMG import.
  10. You need to be using a custom layout to do this. Try saving the layout after correcting the filtering.
  11. Judy, Journal report / Options / Tags tab / Tag Types / select 'Selected' Then omit the custom tag type from those marked selected. Jim
  12. I excluded both spouse ID#s and both sentences. Based on the exclusions, there is no reason that the spouse should show up in the subject's Journal report. I get the same result and can't find any workaround other than editing the Journal report.
  13. TMG V9 on a New Laptop

    Go to the old laptop and run Help / Technical Support / Trouble Report and that will create a document with the correct email address and registration number. Use those to unlock TMG on the new machine. Copy and paste the registration number rather than trying to type it.
  14. Focus Groups

    Ruth, As Terry writes, focus groups are part of the TMG database. The only way that you can edit them are by using the Focus Groups tool in TMG. Using the Save and Load convention makes it appear that focus groups are external files but they are not.
  15. In the Tag Box, right-click and select' Filter for...'. Unselect 'Non-witnessed events'.
