Thank you for your prompt reply. However, as I was working on this day and night for fear I had lost my data, it occurred to me that one can upgrade in 8.5 from previous version. I had not installed my 4.2 to the new computer and I do like working with it too. I find it simpler than 8.5 and I like their charting. Therefore, after installation on the new computer, I was able to bring my 4.2 file into the 8.5 verson. Voila! now I have two programs to keep current. (I also have FTM). Guess there's always a way if you keep at it.

By the way though, do you know how I can set my 4.2 to my Windows Word program. When I installed it I accidentally checked Word Pad. I know there is a way to switch it over, but I haven't found the magic button.

Thanks again. It's great to have inter-action on Generations, since we have all been abandoned. I still like it above others I have seen.
