  1. .dbf file not found

    Thanks Jim, I will do that if the problem persist. Now when it happens, I just keep trying and out of the blue, it works.
  2. Every once in awhile, for no apparent reason, when I try to open a project, it gives me a error message that it can't find file "project_ ND.dbf not found". Can anyone tell me what has happened. It appears that this file has been corrupted some how and I can't figure out what's going on. When I look at my documents projects, it appears to be there but it still won't open the project.
  3. OK..Thanks. The flag was used 8 times and after I deleted the 8 occurrences, I was able to go back and delete the Flag. I must have created that Flag several years ago and forgotten that I had done it. Do you happen to know if, when I created this custom flag, did I do something wrong that resulted in these errors? It must have worked OK when I used it on these 8 people. Anyway, thanks so much for your help. I appreciate it very much.
  4. When I attempt to delete this tag type, It tells me that I can't because it been used 8 times, Is there a way to see where those 8 tags have been used?
  5. For many many years I've avoided using this particular tag type because I always got an error message when I tried. It is the only tag type that I've ever tried to use that gives me an error message. The error messages are: 1. operator/operand type mismatch. 5 2."frmevents cntparentchilda mvalidate" 3. Variable 'laroles' is not found. 61 I looked at passed post and was not able to see anything like this. Can anyone help?
  6. Variable errors

    Thanks Jim, Sorry for the post, I should have searched before posting. I'll do better the next time. Just for reference, can you give me the reason this type of error occurs. Maybe I would be able to prevent it from happening again.
  7. For the last few days I've been getting errors when I add information to a detail page. It seems like it only happens when I use "cut and past" to enter info for a person. When I type the info in instead it doesn't seem to give me the errors. There are 3 errors that I get: 1. Variable :BYSEQ" is not found, 51 reppush, 2. Variable "BYFIELD" is not found. 90 reppush, and 3. Table has no index order set, 91 reppush. Can anyone give me some advice?
  8. I'm attempting to find certain text items in my database. According to the "help contents", this should be able be accomplished from the Edit menu. There is and item in this menu called "Find text" but it and most all other items in that menu are grayed out. Can anyone help me out as to why?
  9. I'm trying to change the name of an exhibit and can't seem to find out if it is possible. I'm probably missing something very simple, but can't seen to get it done.
  10. Windows 11

    Buzz, Refer to message Sept 25 from Bettle3247
  11. I just discovered that the Automatic "Relation" Tag does not work using Win11. Unless I'm doing something wrong???
  12. ID numbers

    I have a couple of questions relating to ID numbers. 1. Can an ID number be changed once you add a new person if I made an error? 2. The reason I ask this question is when I added a new person, I inadvertently changed the next unused default ID number but did not notice it right away. Now every time I add a new person, the program wants to use a number that is the next number in sequence to the number I screwed up. Now when I use the F2 key to see what the next unused ID number, it has 2 groups of numbers. The remaining numbers (the ones that should be there) but after that another sequence of numbers starting with the number I messed up. An example may help: When I now hit the F2 key it lists to groups of numbers, 3000 thru 4000 but after that it starts with another group starting with 30002999 thru 30004000. Is there any way of deleting that last group of numbers or do I need to renumber may whole data set? Sorry for the long question but I have no other way of explaining it.. Jim
  13. Error message #17

    Jim, I'm sorry to bother you regarding this error and your reply but I can't figure it out. Your last reply (if I understood what you are saying) told me that there was a problem with a damaged file. What I don't understand is your last sentence. Did you actually fix the damaged file and return it to me and if so, how do you send it back to me? I didn't receive anything. What am I missing? Thanks again for everything you do for TMG users.
  14. I have received an error message that reads: "function argument value, type or count is invalid. FRMEVENT.CNTWITTNESS.MCHECKROLLS. #17. This occures when attempting to add a Military Service tag to an person. Has anyone ever had expirence with this error who can give me any advice? I'm using the last version 9 on a windows 10 computer. Thanks for any help you can give. Jim
  15. What I would like to do is produce a list of Multiple Births (I'm looking for a list of twins). I did not use the Multiple Birth Flag from the beginning so any list I produce may not be accurate. Is there a way of adding this flag to my entire data base? I'm thinking along the lines of a universal change of everyone in my data base. OR do I have to go through each person detail screen and change each one individually? If anyone can give me some guidance on this issue, I would greatly appreciate it (or tell me i'm way off base or crazy). Thanks, Jim
