Thanks, Nick, that worked really neatly. I hadn't realised how useful the Query tool can be. Obviously I need to read up on SQL to get the best out of it.

Working with Sources

I'm trying to organise better my references to Sources and Repositories which tended to be a bit haphazard when I started with KKPro. I can see how to search for and delete duplicate source entries, but in certain cases I would like to find and review those person/family records where a particular s...

I tried File|Database|Pack and after that Preview proceeded to a successful conclusion with all boxes (including Sources) checked. Thanks for your help in resolving the problem.

I turned off 'Pictures' in 'Preview' but that didn't help. However, following on from that I unchecked all the boxes, tried 'Preview' which then worked! Then I added back the settings one at a time. All worked until I got to 'Sources'. I even managed to complete 'Preview' with everything checked exc...

I have 512 MB RAM and 11.2 GB free disc space, so I wouldn't have thought that I'm running out of resources. By the way, I tried running 'Preview' again. This time it seemed to get much further, up to family F256 but then seemed to stall without any error message. I then had another look at the data...

I looked inside the database folder and I couldn't find any files called 'Temp'. There is a collection of folders which appear to be empty with names such as 'CHUDQETU' plus some files with names like 'Aliases', 'Documents', 'Families', etc, but no 'Temp'. I assume it is some sort of temporary file ...

Family Details Report

I want to make a print a paper record of my database using the Family Details Report. I 'Select All' families and then choose to 'Preview' the Family Details Report. However, it stalls some time into the formatting of the preview with the error message 'Permission Denied FileC:\Program Files\Kith an...

Thanks for that, Nick. I should have asked the question before I started to populate the new database!

Copying sources/repositories to new database

In KKPro 2.02, is there a way of copying the set of sources and repositories from an existing database to a new one?

I had minor corruption of a database, in which 'sources' was not working properly. I found that Verify in the Fix Utility indicated that all was OK, but I chose to Fix anyway, and that seemed to cure the problem. Good luck with recovering your database!

Web pages produced from ancestor tree

My database contains information on the siblings of my ancestors. When I select an ancestor tree and export web pages from it, I also get information about these siblings, and not just people on the direct line. Is there any way to suppress this information, as in the ancestor tree printed reports?

Birth/baptism dates in Reports

I notice that you can tick boxes when setting up reports to provide birth OR baptism dates and burial OR death dates. My problem is that the most precise dates are usually the baptism and burial dates which are what parish registers usually record. If, as I have done in some cases, you enter an assu...

Thanks, Nick, that worked. But I was puzzled that the Fix Utility consistently reported no errors on 'Verify'. The problem only seemed to go away when I chose to 'Rebuild' anyway.

Adding multiple source references for KKPRo V2

I thought I had managed to do this before but now I don't seem to be able to add multiple source references for the occupation field, for example. There is a message which says "22 of 4 source references for this field" (which doesn't seem to make sense) and only the backwards scrolling arrow is sho...

Personally, I see a family tree as two-dimensional, and I don't see how you would use layers. I prefer to keep all my family on one database which is easier for updating. If I want a particular view of a family branch, I find that this can be done by selecting 'ancestor of' or 'descendant of' and ex...
