Re: Search and Replace Plugin - Anomaly

Hi Mike

That is excellent, thank you very much.

It does look as though I was seeing previous results before.
The showing of white space in the results was just what I needed.

Many thanks

Re: Search and Replace Plugin - Anomaly

Hi Mike Thanks for the reply. I've read the Place Name Changes guidance and it doesn't appear to be giving me issues in this particular case. I always work on a copy when doing search and replace until I'm happy that it's doing what I want - been caught out before :D Your suggestion of using the LUA...

Search and Replace Plugin - Anomaly

FH v6.2.7 Windows v10 19041.450 Search and Replace v3.0 I’ve found what appears to be an anomaly. It would appear that it doesn't like repeating the same Search and Replace action. Am I missing something? I’m trying to tidy up a friend’s Addresses & Places entries. The aim is to remove duplicate spa...

Re: Parameter calculation in Query

Thanks Mike that's exactly what I'm looking for.

I'm not really trying to do anything in particular, I simply wanted to find out if it were possible, and my example was simply that.

Re: Parameter calculation in Query

Hi Lorna

Thanks, I thought that might be the case.

Unfortunately it is the built-in functions such as AgeAt that I am trying to circumvent :)

Parameter calculation in Query

Is it possible to calculate a value from a parameter in a Query? Note: This is an example to explain the principle of what I am trying to achieve, not a specific query.

Re: Project Merge – Some Questions

Thanks Mike I had taken into account the other record types, but just wanted confirmation that I understood the linking between Individuals.

Project Merge – Some Questions

I am looking to merge two projects. There are about 7,000 individuals in total. At some point in the past about 1,300 individuals have been merged from Project B into Project A. These merged records still exist in Project B. Questions 1. Am I right in thinking that if I only merged those records in ...

Re: Diagram - Hide Photo if Living

This is the guidance received from Ros at Family Historian Support. It works well. It's not possible to do it in a Single step, but you can work around the problem as follows. Get your diagram displayed. Then select Diagram>Set/Clear Marks using Query http://www.quarlton.co.uk/fhug_images/diagram_li...

Re: Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

That seems quite clear to me Mike.

However, if you make the label *AKA, as you pointed out to me, this moves the search field up the list of 'Other Events' in the Advanced Search.

Re: Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

Yes to displaying the names.

The search using the Advanced search works, but it's not the most instinctive thing to do.

Thinking about adding a bit of text to the home page to point people in the right direction.

Thanks for the input.

Re: Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

I've had a reply from Darrin at TNG:- Under Admin/Custom Event Types, you can edit the "Display Order" for each type. Event types with a lower value should be displayed first, so edit the NAME event and assign it a display order lower than all of your other events types (I think negative numbers wil...

Re: Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

Hi Mike I tried the TNG mod that you suggested and it worked as you describe. Unfortunately it still leaves the additional names (*AKAs) down at the bottom after all the other events. This means that it takes some scrolling to find them. I might have to try your suggestion of concatenating them into...

Peter, Mike

Thanks for the feedback.

I will try the *AKA method tomorrow.

I went to bed last night with snippets of code in my head so wanted to try it out.

Re: Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

Back to the drawing board I think :cry: I managed to get my code working and it replaces the FIRST additional name correctly. However, it appears that FH only allows one nickname per name. So it seems that red-headed William Smith can have a nickname of "Billy" OR "Red", but not both. So whilst you ...

Hi Mike Many thanks for the quick response. It may be that other users don't have as many alternative names as I do, hence it isn't an issue for them. Two of my trees contain a lot of Jewish people and have approximately 450 people who have alternative names, either through Anglicisation, or for oth...

Export Gedcom File - TNG - Nicknames

Hi Mike I use TNG for my web database. Unfortunately one of the issues is that TNG is not very good at handling additional names. TNG loads the first instance of NAME into the 'tng_people' table. Subsequent instances of NAME are loaded into tng_events. This means that, whilst additional names are di...
