Re: 1881,1891,1901 CENSUS BIRTHS DIFFERENT

It might help if you could post screenshots of the Marriage Certificate and 1881 Census. See the FHUG Knowledge Base > Forum Usage under Attachments and Taking Screenshots for how to do that. Are you looking in Census records for a William about the right age with father John and mother Jane? Try th...

Re: 1881,1891,1901 CENSUS BIRTHS DIFFERENT

Welcome to the FHUG. It is quite common for entries on Census Returns to be erroneous and inconsistent. Unlike BMD Certificates that are completed near the date & place of the event, Census birth details rely on the person remembering and the enumerator hearing & recording the details correc...

Re: Individuals name filter suggestion

Thank you for your reply but it does not answer either of my specific questions. If case sensitivity was an option and was enabled then: G%E%HAY% will NOT find Gordon Edward Hay or George Edmund Hays because HAY does not match. G%E%Hay% would work as long as the names did each start with upper-case ...

Re: Individuals name filter suggestion

I'm not sure I fully understand how those wildcards work. In 21168|[Wish List 633] Name Filtering to handle inconsistent entry or miss slashing of names you say that the wildcard "%" covers any number of characters. Also, your examples suggest the filters are case-insensitive. So would G%E...

Re: Windows Media path+filename length under Parallels

Yes, it is not advisable to have various Projects in different locations. Why not? I have a live FH Projects folder for actual research projects, and a second FH Projects (Development) folder for test projects. It works very well, and I can easily flip between live and test projects using the Recen...

Re: Windows Media path+filename length under Parallels

Yes, it is not advisable to have various Projects in different locations.
Ideally, all Projects should be in the File > Project Window... Location: path.

I presume in your examples that the Location: is just a drive letter.

Re: Windows Media path+filename length under Parallels

It is probably not the environment, just that FH hangs with the Not Responding message.

Use Unsourced Individuals link to download plugin V0.3 which adds a progress bar to prevent FH hanging.

Re: Validate and convert date

An issue was discussed recently with regard to AS that has a SYSTEM.DATE option which is based on the PC locale format and may get mishandled when entered into FH source templates where the Short Date Format is different.
See Casting template data as a particular data-type (22911).

Hmm does this plugin not like large files? I've just shy of 69k in the file and it basically just hangs with not responding ... or am I being impatient? ;) It was written as a one-off temporary plugin for a couple of FHUG users, so it is very unsophisticated.

Re: Individual Summary report relationship Capitalisation

Yes, it is a little inconsistent and could be reported to CP if you felt strongly.
However, there is a slightly awkward workaround using the ToUpper(...) function with LeftText(...) and MidText(...):
=ToUpper( LeftText( Relationship( Fileroot() ), 1 ) )=MidText( Relationship( Fileroot() ), 2 )

Re: Validate and convert date

Note that the EstimatedBirthDate function returns a Date Point value and not a Date value.
local dtpMin = fhCallBuiltInFunction( "EstimatedBirthDate", ptrIndi, "EARLIEST", 5 )

So you must use dtDate:GetDatePt1() to be able to compare with dtpMin.

As a plugin author, using iuplua, it is necessary to consider a wide (and narrow) variety of monitor screen sizes.
