My Subject may be incorrect.
It could say the export is correct and that no other software will correctly import them !!
Anyway my problem is that I have thousands of note (mostly Census) with embedded source citations.
The source citations are lost when importing into other packages.
I thought I would define a new Event or Fact called Census and copy the info across - unfortunately neither the Delete/Move Fields function nor Copy/Paste will pick up the Source citation.
HELP - I really want to be able to export meaningful files to other users whilst staying with Generations as long as it still works!
Has anybody developed a utility which will do the conversion I need?
The only way I can do it at present is
1 Retype - horrendous
2 Copy and Paste from a Source Listing Report - almost as bad.
