Preferences - Import Fields - available

Post by Ana » Sun Dec 18, 2005 11:39 am

Legacy TreeDraw - 3.03

Under the sub-catagory of "Fields available for this type" - I haven't the foggiest notion what most fields mean OR why I would chose them.

Is there a more detailed list that would help my poor brain understand these choices:

some examples:

LTMP- 1&2
BirthSD (as different choice from BirthD)
"Already used"

Why do some have "" and others do not?

There is a listing of the more useful of these fields in the help file under "Reference | Database fields".

TreeDraw simply lists the fields which it finds available in the Legacy file, without knowing what they contain. To be honest, most of the fields are badly named and very few will be of any use to the average user; a lot of them are for internal use in Legacy.
