Reposting this unanswered question that I posed back in January 2002 BC (before Clive). Thought he ought to have a crack at it. 8-]

I am helping a friend research his family. We want to use the same database on two separate PCs.

We pass the database back and forth via email or CD. This is working, but some of the already entered places names do not appear drop down list on the other PC. I looked for a "library" file that contains this info but found none.

Is there a way to transfer all the place names so that they appear on the drop down list on the other PC?

Perhaps there is a limit of the number of place names that the drop down list can hold?

Perhaps passing the zipped file vice the database file will cause all place names to be retained?

Thank you,
Craig Hubbard
