Error Exporting database

Post by Adrianne » Sun Jan 14, 2007 1:47 am

I have Of That Ilk Pro 1.05. Every time I try to export my database it says Error - Could not write file. I'm trying to save to a CD to import into another copy of Of That Ilk Pro. (I am following the instructions that came with the program) I also wanted it as a backup. Help please.

Are you exporting the database as a GEDCOM file?

Try exporting it to your hard disk and then using your CD burning software to copy the GEDCOM file from the hard disk to the CD.

Thanks Nick :D
Yes, I was exporting as GEDCOM but the problem must have been actually burning the CD. It worked when I saved it to the desktop first.
Many thanks
Adrianne :D
