RIN 0 is referenced on the Global Search & Replace report when the place name that is changed is in a place field other than birth, christening, death, burial, or marriage.

Whenever you have have place names in such fields as "Residence," "Occupation," "Census," etc. (i.e., the so-called "User Events"), these place names are all grouped into RIN 0.

Check it out next time you do a Global S&R: From the Advanced Search screen, search for the place name that you just changed (i.e., the new name). Check the "Show Results Only" box and then look at a few that weren't reported as individual RINs on your Global S&R report.

Does this help?
