  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Twins

    Thank you both for the help. I haven't been using the multiple birth flag, but I am now.
  6. Twins

    Can anyone help me develop a list of people in my database that are twins? I've tried to develop a filtered group of people with the same date of birth but have not been successful. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jim
  7. Thanks for the message. From your post it dawned on me that the report I was referring to was in fact a journal report. That solved my problem and I thank you so much. One additional question if you don't mind in reference to these journal reports. With one person in said report, in an attempt to get my sentences the way I want them, I added a primary designation to a census report and the other census report in this persons detail changed to non primary. Any clues as to why? Jim
  8. I am interested in using 'MGSQ' style of numbering in my reports. I have such a report that I printed some time ago (I don't know when) and it used this style of numbering. I swear this report was generated from TMG. Did TMG offer at one time (an earlier version) this MGSQ style of numbering? It's the style that uses 'Generation 1, Generation 2, etc and regular numbers with a + sign in front of them. I can't seem to find this style in the options. I'm stumped. Can someone help? Jim
  9. Missing Source

    You've done it again Terry. Thank you for keeping me on track.
  10. I have an unusual problem that I can not figure out. One of my Sources has disappeared from the Master Source list. I wanted to modify it slightly but I can't find the darn thing anywhere.. What's really perplexing is the fact that it still shows up on reports and it still shows as a citation on the Tag Entry screen. Am I going nuts?? Please help...
  11. Project and data set

    Thanks again Terry, like you said, I was making too big a deal out of it. You brought me back to reality. The desendants report is what I was looking for the whole time.
  12. I've been using TMG for many years and I (like many others) have only one PROJECT. I have entered thousands of personal records over time and am now interested in producing REPORTS for specific groups of people. For example, I want to develop a AHNENTAFEL for all decendents of a particular person within my project. This is the part of TMG that I'm an not well versed in. I have read much about setting up either FOCUS GROUPS, FILTERED GROUPS and/or PROJECT EXPLORER to accomplish this task. So far I have not been very successful. Can someone please give me some HOW TO help regarding this. I'm sure that this subject has been discussed in prior forums but I can't seem to find exactly what I'm looking for.
  13. Changing Exhibit Path

    Thank you Terry for your help. I was able to accomplish my goal with your help and the help of TMG Utilities. Jim
  14. I have used an external hd to store my TMG Exhibits for years. The path that I set up at the beginning was T:TMG Exhibits. I now want to change the external hd to a new, larger external hd (different drive letter). If I go into my preferences and change the exhibit folder to the new path, do I have to change each individual exhibit to reflect this change (what a monumental task). Is there a way that I can change all the exhibits to show the new path?
  15. When attempting to update TMG to v8.07 I encountered the error "there is a problem with this Windows installer package. A program run as part of the setup did not finish as expected. Contact your support personal or package vendor." Can you please tell me what the problem is and how to work around? Thanks, Jim
