Re: Query for individuals with initials and missing full names

I thought their purpose was as examples of the kinds of names with initials that he wanted a Query to list and I provided that Query.

Re: Query for individuals with initials and missing full names

I suspect Andrew just chose those names as random examples and it is coincidental that they both have an initial that does not expand to a forename.

Re: Query for individuals with initials and missing full names

Andrew, try the attached Individual Name Initials Query. That relies on the new FH V7 functions =Section(...) and =TextLen(...) =Section(...) allows sections of Name separated by spaces to be extracted. =TextLen(...) allows those sections to be tested for their length. Currently, it only checks Prim...

Re: Restoring CD/DVD Family Trees

The 'missing' folders you found are the original 'CD/DVD' folders that were copied to your actual CD discs. That is why load.exe opens the web pages in your browser. I suspect they were created in FH V6 before you upgraded to FH V7. The old FH V6 settings were in a folder called Settings in the Proj...

Re: Specific Sentence Templates not honoured.

OK, I tried a PC Restart to no effect and then re-installed FH V7.0.11 and that cured the problem. I had been customising various Language Translation settings in support of 20732|sentences: my lack of Englisch? so presumably something in there upset the FH handing of Sentence Templates, but it will...

Re: sentences: my lack of Englisch?

I'm sorry but I do not know the answer to your last question.

Ask CP whether the missing translations for Fact Types, Fact Definition Go To Language Variant... are a fault or intended.

Specific Sentence Templates not honoured.

The 20732|sentences: my lack of Englisch? thread seems to identify a significant fault in CP. In the Property Box Facts tab the Sentence box can be edited to create a Template specific to that Fact. Any such specific fact Template should be used in Narrative Reports but currently they seem to be ign...

Re: Adding multiple marriages in AS

If you invoke AS by using the Ancestral Sources Data Entry plugin it has an option to Close on 'Save Entry to File' which if not ticked will allow multiple entries from AS.

I cannot remember what the AS default is after Save Entry to File.

Re: Get Year from event when contains BEF, AFT etc

Dave, the fact is that Date values are potentially a complex data structure and need careful handling. Qualifiers like :YEAR only work for simple Date formats.

Re: Questions from TMG Refugee

Yes, I did, but my wife and I retired here some years ago and have no family connections with the area.

I have updated the Query with a 'safer' version that only lists matching Witness Roles with cells that can delete them.
The Result Set 'blank' cells, if selected, do not delete anything.

Re: Should I Eliminate Most Witness Facts?

Yes, that makes sense.
If you have a lot of those 'superfluous' Fact Witnesses, then they can be bulk deleted via a suitable custom Query.
We can advise how to build such a Query.

Apart from noticing the numbers, I have ignored them.

John, you can more easily use the Tools > Work with Data > Addresses... command and Edit... the entries there. If you hold down the Alt key on your keyboard while you click on a Part 2 or Part 3 column heading, that will bring long Addresses to the top where you can then Edit... each one very easily.

Re: Audit RM Direct Import plugin

There appear to be two misnomers there! Firstly, the quoted "Superfluous sort dates..." only apply where Range Dates are used and I doubt if any Census event uses Range Dates. Secondly, there is absolutely no problem with a Sort Date of the year 3850 or 3860 . They are not "free-form dates". FH is p...
