Re: V7 - Error to create Project from merged Gedcom

Mike, I have at least a project which includes my last additions, but this excludes many sources which were lost for whatever reasons in V7. I've looked at the Merge and Compare operation and since I have no experience with this before, I have chosen not to use it on my master project (far too risky...

Re: V7 - Error to create Project from merged Gedcom

Hi Mike, Yes, there are backups of previous files. Thank heavens. There were many records on each V6 and V7 projects/gedcoms. I'll update you more once I have trudged some more.

Re: V7 - Error to create Project from merged Gedcom

Hi Mike, I will be honest, I'm getting confused whether it was a V6 gedcom into a V7, or the other way round. Whichever the case, I returned back to an older V6 Gedcom and imported this as a new Project, with the same error message concerning excluded sources. If, I attempted to re-do of a V6/V7 Com...

Re: V7 - Error to create Project from merged Gedcom

Well, I tried as you suggested :- 1) Created a new project by importing the V6 gedcom. Then tried to merge and compare with the V7. I selected the merge button without hitting the check button. Not sure whether this was right though. The result was the same, in that there was no records (individuals...

V7 - Error to create Project from merged Gedcom

Hi, After finding that several of my sources had vanished (probably due to an earlier validation prompt), I began to merge copies of my V6 ad V7 gedcoms. I can load the merged Gedcom by the Project Window > More Tasks > Gedcom File Tasks > Open Gedcom File. When I try to recreate this as a new proje...

Re: One Name Studies

To support Gowermick I have done the same in my project and differentiated the Un-related people by adding a suffix like, Joe /BLOGGS/ (U-R), then add create a flag to record them as Unrelated.
They can then be displayed in a named list.

V7 - Customised Diagram Icons

Hi,

I'm astonished when I tried inserting my custom diagram icons back.
V7 looks like you can't browse through your Windows folder and attach your customised icon.
This surely can't have been overlooked by C.P. ?
Any suggestions.

Thanks

Re: Removing Additional Photos from Focus Window

In the Property window (for each person), go to the Media tab.
All your media items for that person will be listed.
Select the record you no longer want to display on the Focus widow.
Click the 'Edit' icon.
Tick the option, Exclude from Diagrams.

Re: Diagram Expressions / Icons / Contains Place

Appreciate the last update Mike,

It got a result (i.e. diagram icon) when the place name was ",England". Which does the job nicely.
Great work.
Thanks.

Re: Diagram Expressions / Icons / Contains Place

Thanks for your efforts Mike. Even with the updated expression, the string sadly reads as a non-valid expression. I will carry on using the record flags and queries, which produces the right results. I thought using Expressions with the diagram boxes would have made the process more automatic, but t...

Re: Diagram Expressions / Icons / Contains Place

Thanks Mike Aware of this rule with the likes of Excel. Hopefully, it won't be long until Mike Tate has come up with a re-working. I hope where ever the county name is (i.e. in Field 1, Field 2, so on), it will work. Otherwise, it's a case of keeping the record flags, and running the query each time.

Re: Diagram Expressions / Icons / Contains Place

Thank you Mike,

I will indeed look at the knowledge base article.

Makes sense, regarding the redundant census year.
I've tried cutting and pasting the expressions you've kindly made, but for some reason it still shows it's invalid, is it anything to do with the 2nd closed bracket ?

Cheers.

Create a new individual query.
On line two add : "=RelationPool(%INDI%)"
Those not in Pool 1, should be orphans.

Query for source certainty assessment

Hi,

I'm looking for a simple query which shows the source certainty assessment note field for each fact.
Would someone please point me in the right direction whether it's a source query, fact query, individual query; along with the query label.

Thanks.
