Re: IUP again

Your code is broken, impossible as that may seem, What happens when you run analyse on your code in Zerobrane? Which you should do whenever you make changes before you go anywhere near the debug window -- but you probably know that. Does it tell you that you're referencing an unknown variable 'list'...

Re: IUP again

Ron, at some point (a) you need to debug your own code; and (b) you need to actually do the coding. Please look at other plugins and understand all the underpinnings! As an aside, your code when the OK button is pressed gets the selected list value and does absolutely nothing with it. Please, stop u...

Re: IUP again

You receive the action if you program the callback. Unless you want to check the validity of the selection, you probably won't program a callback on the list. You will program a callback on an OK button and in that button you can get the selected value(s) from the list and then do whatever you want ...

Re: IUP again

Can you post the actual code please -- formatted as code "I send into the equivalent of your MakeList(options)" doesn't tell me enough about how you're calling it. As a clue, Makelist takes as its single parameter a table of named options, so you invoke it as e.g. listQuality = MakeList{sort = "NO",...

Re: IUP again

l is any iup.list; tblVals is any Lua table (indexed or non-indexed). It take the values in the table and drops them into the list. You code is a good start, but how are you constructing your iup list? You'll also want to think about how you handle what happens when a value is selected. Have a look ...

Re: Exporting query results to MS Access

If you want to import it into Access, not Excel, open Access with a blank database and go to the External Data menu item. Then select New Data Source > From File > Text File. Select your csv that you exported from Fh. Access will steer you through the import.

Re: LDS AFN

I suspect the ID meant is the unique identifier in the LDS mega tree, like KWJZ-HGK (which is for a distant relative of mine). Using custom ID would make sense if everyone in your tree is going to have either no custom ID or only custom IDs in that format. Presumably you might have people in your tr...

Re: Use of C and E drives on pc

I do wonder if this conversation is getting to the point that a local hands-on PC expert is the quickest solution? Assuming (unlike me) you're not in "shut the door don't go out and arm the cats with machines guns to repel boarders" mode?

Re: Wrong version of MS word opens

Mike, you do not need to hack the registry. What order were the programmes installed in? I'm guessing O365 first as the PC came with it, the the standalone version.

Re: Wrong version of MS word opens

You might have to uninstall both Office 365 and the standalone program(s) and then reinstall the standalone program(s). MS has two different installation mechanisms for 365 and standalone, and they conflict with each other.

Re: Sharing violation

We need a little more info to work out what's going on.

What else was running at the same time?

Do you have your FH project data or Gedcom in Dropbox/Google Drive/OneDrive?

Did anything on your system change before this started happening?

Re: Military Service & Sources

I handle source images as Lorna does -- mostly one source, multiple document images. My output only goes to a website where I display the fact notes and (if I've done a transcription, which isn't usually the case for voluminous service records) the text from source.
