I ran check/fix on my PAF data base and that revealed several errors, all relating to pointersthat the software could not fix. Most I have not been able to figure out. An example error mg is "Individual 180 user event citation pointer 490 pointing to wrong owner (181)". Assume 180 and 181 are RINs. Neither of the individuals have event sources recorded. My problem is, how to identify the pointer, i.e. 490. All the errors are similar. I can find no mention of "pointers" in the documentation or Help file, although I assume it is a means of tying RINs or events to the proper individual. Can anybody give me a clue or point me in the right direction? Thanks. Edward
