Re: PAF 5 - update from TempleReady .OUP file

Yes, but it wasn't the answer I was looking for. I learned that even though TempleReady creates the .oup file, it can't be used in PAF! (Someone who called Salt Lake about it was told that "it was intended for something that didn't materialize.") Perhaps this will be corrected in future versions.

There was one person who suggested a workaround that I tried, but couldn't get it to work. I've attached it below; maybe you'll have better luck. In the end I just went in and made screen prints of the temple ordinance
information and did my updates by hand. Oh well....still beats the old days of pencil, paper, and typewriters!

"If you are using PAF, you should not enter or update a GEDCOM in TempleReady for Windows. This creates the updated GEDCOM with the .oup extension. Some programs, I am told, can use the .oup GEDCOM, but PAF cannot.

Instead, always take a backup to the FHC, restore it, and then open the .paf file in TempleReady. When you get through with it in TempleReady, back it up and take it home with you and restore it. It will contain the TempleReady updates."
