Typical Laurel & Hardy style, I've gotten myself into a fine mess.
I have a huge database that comprises my entire family and my husband's as well. I made a copy of it, thinking I would delete some people and use the rest for a specific purpose, and I did indeed delete a lot of people. That plan didn't work out, however, so I turned to other matters.
Subsequently, I did a ton of research on one of my family lines and entered it into my database. To my chagrin, I just discovered that I wasn't entering this new research into my "MAIN FILES" database, but rather had inadvertently failed to switch back to "MAIN FILES" from this aborted extra database that I'd created and deleted parts of.
I can't stand the idea of entering each individual, along with his/her mates and descendants and all the attached sources and notes, all over again into the "MAIN FILES" database. Is there a realistic way to copy an individual and his/her attachments from this erroneous database over into my actual "MAIN FILES" database? I tried to "copy person" from my project explorer, and the screen offered me the option of copying it into a dataset called "Main" that had been imported back in 2004. I'm sure this was my original import when I got on TMG and I have no idea what's in it. The "dataset" term is confusing to me, because "MAIN FILES" is the only database I know of that is current. What is the difference between my database and a "dataset?" The database is a .pjc file and I have no idea what a dataset is, since it only offers me this one from 2004 that I don't recognize.
Can someone help me get un-lost and save me from my own mess?
