I can't explain the problem, but I can attempt to duplicate the error here.
In INDIVIDUAL VIEW Screen, my list appears like this example:
When I click on FAMILY VIEW:
James BUSH (is married to) Adams, Anna
Anna's last name is Anna instead of Adams.
When I attempt to match-merge, it only works for exactly 1/2 of the database. It won't reverse the order of the names.
When I first started this database (Feb 1998 with regular PAF updates), everything was fine.
I encountered the problem of "reverse name order" after I added a GEDCOM to my database.
Anyone know if it's possible to fix this problem without manually reversing 1/2 the names in the database?
I don't like to use commas in my PAF files.
