Using small charts in TMG reports

Recommended Posts

Small charts are easily combined with TMG reports as in the example below of a TMG8 rendition of William Dollarhide's Master Data Sheet. The 2-page report combines the Individual Detail report with a 4 generation ancestor chart inserted (using Copy and Paste from VCF to the Word document) between the report and the endnotes:
