I have merged 2 individuals. Both dissappeared from my database, and a person from another datset was displayed. To aid investigation, I repeated the process, and logged my actions: I selected an individual 1:11005 and chose the 'merge 2 individuals option' and selected 1:24108 I was offered the choice of 1:24108 and 2:24108. (Why is this choice always offered when merging between datasets is not permitted?) I chose 1:24108 The merge screens were displayed. 2:15876 was on the left and 1:24108 was on the right I cancelled I repeated steps 1-3 This time 1:11005 was displayed on the left and 1:24108 on the right I checked the name of 1:11005, unchecked the name of 1:24108 and merged 2:15876 was displayed in the person details not 1:11005 I selected 'Last Viewed person'. 1:11005 was displayed. I selected F2. 2:15876, not 1:11005 was displayed in the Expanded Picklist I tried again: I selected 1:11010, After this person was displayed, I hit F2 and selected the following entry 1:24852 Having checked that this was the correct person with which I intended to merge, I selected 'Last Viewed person'. 2:5210 was displayed. I selected 'Last Viewed person'. Nothing happened. I repeated this several times but 2:5210 remained displayed I hit F2 and was returned to 1:11010 in the Expanded Picklist, not 2:5210 I selected 1:11010 from the picklist and this person was displayed. I selected 'Last Viewed person'. Nothing happened. I repeated this several times but 1:11010 remained displayed I hit F2 and was returned to 2:5210 in the Expanded Picklist, not 1:11010 I scrolled through the Expanded Picklist to find 1:11010 It wasn't there. But 1:11005 (the missing ID from my first merge) was there, with the Name from 1:11010. And when I checked the tags, the data belonged to neither the original 1:11005 nor 1:11010 !!! Clearly, there's major problems here.
