Downloaded Paf 5 about 9 months ago and have taught myself how to use it. Everything so far seemed fine till tried to create a gedcom file to send to a contact.
Went with all the steps in help window "How to create GEDCOM files". After selecting the preferances that I want and clicking "Export" I get a small window saying I have selected "ANSEL" character setting, do I wish to continue, "Yes" or "No". I click "Yes", as this is recommended for my contact's programme. Next window is titled "Exp. GEDCOM file as". I select Drive C and name my file "Banks *ged", then click "Export" ....and nothing happens! I get no window telling me that the file has been successfully created, and indeed a search confirms that fact! I've tried creating it in other locations all to no avail. Am I not getting things right when I name it perhaps?
I have had a GEDCOM sent to me, worked out how to open it, and it is fine. My PC is running Windows ME.
If anyone has some suggestions I would really appreciate hearing from you.
Thanks in anticipation,
Bob.
