I have just discovered a problem with my TMG database (recently upgraded to 9.05, Windows 7). There are many sources (more than 10, less than 70) in the database that have associated with them many copies (between ca. 10 and 435) of the same repository. For instance, one source (MSL > edit source > Attachments) has: 18 Salem Lutheran Church Cemetery 13 Frieden's Ev. Luth. Ch. Cem. 13 Frieden's Ev. Luth. Ch. Cem. 13 Frieden's Ev. Luth. Ch. Cem. 13 Frieden's Ev. Luth. Ch. Cem. 13 Frieden's Ev. Luth. Ch. Cem. 13 Frieden's Ev. Luth. Ch. Cem. 13 Frieden's Ev. Luth. Ch. Cem. 13 Frieden's Ev. Luth. Ch. Cem. 13 Frieden's Ev. Luth. Ch. Cem. 13 Frieden's Ev. Luth. Ch. Cem. Obviously, I did not add all of these copies of the same repository. Furthermore, repository #13 is incorrect and should not be associated with this source at all. Across sources, it is not always the same repositories that are involved in this error. Should I delete all of the copies and incorrect repositories by hand or should I look for the underlying cause of the problem? What could have caused this to happen? (This is the 3rd corruption of this database that I have discovered over the years.) Thanks for any advice! Barbara
Hello, I've used TMG for awhile now, and I cite everything very completely. When I create reports, it shows every single citation. For "names", and "births" of some individuals, I have upwards of 50 to 60 citations. Obviously, when creating reports, including this display amount of citations is obviously overdoing it. I have recently found that if I put a minus sign in front of the citation assignment, I can get the citation to not show unless I choose "show excluded data". This works perfectly, and unless there's a better way to exclude citations, and make one, two or three citations primary(to only show only these on reports), this is the best way of doing what I want. If anyone knows a better way, please let me know. So given the way I think I want to do this now, I will have to retrofit all the citations to match this paradigm. Is there a way to globally change all citations from a number to include the negative sign in front of it, for example, change the citation with source number "36" to source number "-36"? Jon Reed
