The project I am having trouble with is big -- 1 GB.  I need a report that shows my direct line for two 2nd great-grandparents.  The Ancestor Box report gets as far as opening the Visual ChartForm, but then I get the error message:  VCF has stopped working and the only choice is to close the program.  I did set it to Save to:, not View in VCF.


When I run the Compressed Pedigree, it calculates the number of people, generates the text, but then the blue circle is there for at least 2.5 hours.  I gave up then.  One of the CPed reports says it's calculated 5286 grandparents, 27 generations, the other is 6207 & 25.


I have feeling you're going to tell me the reports are just too big.  I suppose I need a mainframe to produce these reports, not a PC.  I thought I'd ask the question just in case there's something else I can do.  We've got a family reunion in July and we'd really like to show what we've got.
