FRUSTRATING SORT DATE PROBLEM
Posted by: Judith Litsinger Burgett (ID *****3226) Date: October 04, 2006 at 08:40:30

My UFT program was successfully transferred to Windows XP with the expertise of a paid computer person.

Previously, I was able to use a sort date to arrange missing births in order. Under the birth category I would write ďunknown,Ē and fabricate a sort date that placed the person correctly within the family unit. Even if a death date existed, no calculated age appeared.

Now, however, if I know a death date and make up a birth sort date, UFT inserts an age at death into the record. If I donít use a sort date, individuals with missing births incorrectly pop to the top of the sibling list.

Does anyone know of a simple way to solve this problem? Iím good at word processing and Internet searches, but am totally inept at data-based and computer programming.

Thank you.

Judith A. Burgett
