Re: Diagram Expressions / Icons / Contains Place

Appreciate the last update Mike,

It got a result (i.e. diagram icon) when the place name was ",England". Which does the job nicely.
Great work.
Thanks.

Re: Diagram Expressions / Icons / Contains Place

Thanks for your efforts Mike. Even with the updated expression, the string sadly reads as a non-valid expression. I will carry on using the record flags and queries, which produces the right results. I thought using Expressions with the diagram boxes would have made the process more automatic, but t...

Re: Diagram Expressions / Icons / Contains Place

Thanks Mike Aware of this rule with the likes of Excel. Hopefully, it won't be long until Mike Tate has come up with a re-working. I hope where ever the county name is (i.e. in Field 1, Field 2, so on), it will work. Otherwise, it's a case of keeping the record flags, and running the query each time.

Re: Diagram Expressions / Icons / Contains Place

Thank you Mike,

I will indeed look at the knowledge base article.

Makes sense, regarding the redundant census year.
I've tried cutting and pasting the expressions you've kindly made, but for some reason it still shows it's invalid, is it anything to do with the 2nd closed bracket ?

Cheers.

Double click on the blue Focus square in the top left hand corner of the Focus Window. The Focus window should then revert back to 50:50 with the Properties box on the right hand side of the screen. On second thoughts, this doesn't work, it just brings the property box on the right hand side to the ...

Re: Check for Unlinked Relatives or Individuals

Create a new individual query.
On line two add : "=RelationPool(%INDI%)"
Those not in Pool 1, should be orphans.

I found this by going on the 'Help menu'.

Hi,

I'm looking for a simple query which shows the source certainty assessment note field for each fact.
Would someone please point me in the right direction whether it's a source query, fact query, individual query; along with the query label.

Thanks.

Record Window - Timeline of family events affected by adding Witness event

Hi, Apologies if this has already been brought to the forum members before. Normally, in a person's records window, you would see the shaded lines, for example, their mother's/father's deaths . Which I think is great. When you add Witnesses to an event using the 'gear'symbool. The event name is then...

Re: Query for source note

Hi Mike,

Yes. The query type is 'Individual'.

Sadly, there was no way back for the hard drive, the MS tool wasn't able to repair the problem, so I've lost some data and settings. A harsh lesson.

Thanks for your help Mike - i'll give a whirl.
