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:

,BUSH James
,ZIMMERMAN Elizabeth
Adams, Anna
Bush, James
Grizzle, John
Woodring, Albert
Zimmerman, Elizabeth

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.

Rachal Grizzle, dummy at large.
