  1. Living Flag Corrupted

    You are quite right, of course, but it looked the same in the manager (I checked both to make sure and then apparently sent the wrong screen shot). I just sent the zipped files. Thank you.
  2. I disable the living flag so I don't know when this began but today while in flag manager I noticed my living flag has the values "?,Q,R,L,M,E" and of course it cannot be edited so I do not know how to fix this. Any ideas?
  3. Source Reminders

    There is an option under Data Entry to "Open Reminder window automatically" but that also does the tag reminders. If that isn't it, are her tag reminders working properly? Does her citation reminder show up when she clicks on the green lightbulb (or whatever that icon is)?
  4. Thank you so much, Jim!
  5. I just sent it, thank you.
  6. I do start with the Welcome screen - learned that one the hard way many years ago. It finally got out of repair mode after several restarts and reboots (which were probably unnecessary). I do understand my project is probably damaged - the power went out exactly as I pressed F9 so things were being written (in my rudimentary understanding of these things). I would be most appreciative if you would have a look, it's about 5,051kb zipped. Thank you.
  7. The power went out at exactly the moment I hit f9 and I can't open my main file - if I try to open it without closing the sample file it says "an error happened when opening the data tables" and if I try with the sample file closed it says "The project is in use elsewhere." In addition, TMG is running in repair mode even after opening uncorrupted files and rebooting my computer. There are no CDX files for my crashed project. I've emptied my temp files. Is there anything else I can do?
  8. I get this issue quite frequently. Re-indexing and optimizing don't help. Usually, I can clear it by opening the name tag for the person it defaulted to, making a change to the name and changing it back again and closing the window. I then navigate to the person it is confused with and do the same. In most cases that fixes things. I understand that logically that should not change anything, but logically this shouldn't be happening either so I roll with what works. On the few cases where that does not resolve the issue (most often it seems when the error has not occurred as a result of adding like-named children), I renumber each of the people getting mixed up. Whichever way I get it cleared up, I then re-index and optimize. I have never noticed a random person in the list of recently viewed people when this error occurs, I have noticed that it does not roll over to the person I am attempting to move to, but assumed that was because I didn't actually get to that person.
  9. 12Variable 'ROLE' is not found

    Sent - email with same title as this thread, thank you.
  10. I updated to 9.03 yesterday. One database is ok, another one gives this error when I start up. If I abort it then opens the Db. I have reindexed, run validation, optimized - all more than once - to no avail. Now what? 25-07-14, 08:52:51 12Variable 'ROLE' is not found. 6790 FIXROLE_E1 25-07-14, 08:52:55 12Variable 'LNCOUNTVAR' is not found. 6792 FIXROLE_E1 25-07-14, 08:52:57 12Variable 'ROLE' is not found. 6796 FIXROLE_E1
  11. Thanks for checking that. I feel better thinking it is still on the list rather than completely forgotten about.
  12. This is a link to the original thread. This was not fixed in Version 8 and is still happening in version 9. http://www.whollygenes.com/forums201/index.php?showtopic=13702&hl=
  13. Report Oddity

    Thanks, good to know I am not nuts
  14. Report Oddity

    No. I can get these same results in the same report for the same event. And it behaves the same way for every married female, not just one or two. It's odd isn't it. Are you able to replicate it?
  15. Report Oddity

    I know Prin1 Suffix (Selected) will do what I want, but that still leaves the options Prin1 Last, first (selected) and Prin1 first last (selected) behaving in different ways than expected. I would expect them to differ only in the order of the first and last names, not in which name they show and whether or not they include the suffix. I think I missed a part out of my original message. Matilda Gray married Thomas Dent becoming Matilda Dent (Gray). In my census tag I have selected her name as Matilda Dent. If I select Prin1 Last, first (selected) I get Dent, Matilda, (Gray) If I select Prin1 first last (selected) I get Matilda Gray My expectation would be that I would get Dent, Matilda or Matilda Dent Both selections are giving unexpected results.
