Trouble with family data file - can you help - Please!
Posted by: Alfred Kretschmer (ID *****9145) Date: July 31, 2004 at 21:37:16

The PAF 5.2.18 which I have been using is working perfectly with two different family data bases.
However I am having difficulties with my third family data base. I must assume that Paf 5.2.18 is OK and that it is the family data which are giving me trouble.
I am unable to marry an existing individual to another existing individual. The particular required screen just does not come up.
Under ‘File’ Export, Backup and Print Reports are not accessible. (Shaded Lightly)
Under ‘Edit’ Multimedia is not accessible
Under ‘Search’ Individual list, Find by RIN/MRIN, Advanced focus filter, Home person are not accessible.
Under “Tools” Match/Merge, Change name to mixed case, Create Web Page, Relationship calculator are not accessible. Strangely ‘Merge duplicate sources and citations’ is accessible on this troubled data file . When running it the results are 0 repositories, 0 source records, 0 source citations.

My source list under ‘Edit’ only has numbers up into the fifties – there is nothing to edit

The other difference I found on my troubled file are 792 deleted Individuals and 282 deleted marriages.

When running the ‘check/repair’ program the results are – no problems were found.

Is there a way to fix my family data file so that it will behave normal again? I hate the thought of having to type it all over again. (609 individuals and 525 marriages)

Has anyone run into this problem ?
