How is the INDI-No. built?
Posted by: Caspar Spenrath (ID *****0399) Date: March 25, 2010 at 05:34:41

I created several examples of PAF-files in order to study the export to Gedcom. I found that there are obviously some ways to generate the INDI-No. while exporting to Gedcom.

One example shows a simple number between @I1@ and @I50@ (I created this PAF-File by manual input), another examples shows INDI-No. of 12 digits and no obvious system how being built (this example was derived of a downloaded IGI-file).

Does anyone know the method how the INDI-No. is built by PAF?

Thank you in advance
