Hi, I cannot seem to include any sentences that I have typed in to the anecdote tag when exporting my project using Gedcom to my daughters TMG v8 programme. It means that I have to print off a report and for her to manually go through it and type up the necessary information. Any suggestions?

Sentences typed where? Any text in the memo field is exported to GEDCOM and will be imported by TMG8.

Unfortunately I do not use the memo field. I prefer to use the sentance field, as it reads better in a report.

GEDCOM has no support for sentences so the contents of the sentence field are not exported.

 

If you are running TMG8 and your daughter is using the same version of TMG8, you should not be using GEDCOM. You should be sending her a TMG project (which could be a subset of your project if that's what you want). In this case, whether she gets the sentences depends on how she uses the project.
