  1. I didn't use the Access Folders option and will look at that next.


    However I claimed success too quickly. In this project I have 4 data sets. Only one of the data sets is able to access ancestor box charts, descendant box charts and hourglass charts. The other three data sets can now open hourglass charts but not ancestor or descendant charts. Yes, the problem exists only with box charts. Do you have any further suggestions?



  2. I have used v7 and recently upgraded to v8.04. When I try to create some reports through the report menu, I receive an error message for the Descendant Box Charts, Ancestor Box Charts and the Hourglass Box Chart.


    Here is the message that appears in each case when I click on one of these reports:


    operator/operand type mismatch. 8



    The only choice is to abort since retry and ignore options are not active. I use Windows 7 64 bit. Any advice how to correct this problem is appreciated!



  3. You're very welcome. Along with Terry's articles, the TMG mailing list is a good source of friendly help. Subscribe at:




    You may also be interested in examples of user-customized layouts and toolbars in the forum thread at:







    I appreciate the tips and subscribe to several rootsweb mailing lists and didn't realize that there was one for TMG. I'm already having fun with the versatility of the layouts! Thanks again. :) [/size]

  4. Were your 'narratives' in a 'More About' note in FTM? If so, in TMG go to the detail view of a person for whom you had a narrative and look for a Note tag, open it and and see if the narrative is in the Memo. I also recommend Terry Reigel's article on importing from other programs into TMG (including tips on FTM) at:




    Terry has a number of other articles you may find helpful in learning TMG.





    Yes, the narratives are all in the Note tag memo. I also found Terry's website this afternoon and will read it through. Thanks!

  5. As a new user I'm asking what I'm sure is a simple question. Having successfully imported one project from Family Tree Maker, I'm looking for a way in which to access my narrative texts (I click the "more" tab in FTM for each individual's narrative.) I have lengthy narratives for many individuals having collected information over the years. I've read and reread the manual. I see the different formats to print out the information - Where do I go simply to read, enter and edit the narrative text information?
