My TMG database goes back to when it was a DOS program (!) and my early days of genealogy when I wasn't very careful about things like sources and who I got my info from. Now I have identified a large group of 436 people who are interrelated but have been "cut off" from any relationship with the legitimate members of my family tree by removing some child-parent links. By using the List of People report to set a custom flag, I have all of these people flagged and can filter them in the Project Explorer, make them into a Focus Group, etc., but what I can't seem to do is to simply DELETE them from the database!
One technique that was suggested was to Move them to a new dataset and then delete that dataset. Unfortunately, that doesn't work, as TMG fails on some sort of missing RULESET var and then hangs until aborted. Doing a Delete Persons against the filtered Project Explorer also doesn't work since it says that one or more has "relationships", which of course is true (within that group of people).
TMG Help tells me that I can't delete a person until I delete all their tags, but that would be unbelievably tedious for 436 people (and no mass tag-delete function that I can see).
So is there any way to do this?
