There is a simple explanation, Mike, as to why that worked - the new GEDCOM standard which now applies. The "PAF" selection in FTM would select a format that applied to previous GEDCOM format, and FTM have not caught up with the times (they live in a world of their own over there :-) ). PAF 5 now copes with non-Roman charcters and the previous GEDCOM standard can not cope with those.

Glad to have helped - have a merry Christmas!
