Just got a new computer and had to install TMG 9 - fine. However married names are not being generated in this new download (I do say to create married name).  I have run file validation and restarted TMG but still no married names (I have to manually create them)

I assume when you say "(I do say to create married name)" this implies you have set the "Preferences // Program Options // Prompts // Prompt for married names" as being checked?  A Name-Married will only be created as part of creating a Marriage tag, and then only when the male linked to the Marriage tag has a surname, and there is a female linked to the Marriage tag.


Under what circumstances do you not see these Name tags being created?  Are you getting the prompt asking if you want a married name?  If so and you click Yes, what do you see in the female's Detail screen?

See my book on how I customize TMG My Way.

TMG Utility can be used to remove/create married names globally. It's worth periodically removing all married names and recreating them so that they are standardized.
