Including additional data in the boxes

How do I get Occupation to appear/print in the boxes. (I've included it in the Gedcom export from Ancestry)

Hi,

If you want to import additional fields from a GEDCOM file which do not have corresponding fields in the default TreeDraw temporary database (the one it uses for importing GEDCOM files), then you can add your own fields to import the extra data into. You can then use these fields in the "Import fields" settings to tell TreeDraw what to do with the extra data.

The GEDCOM tag you should use to set up the extra field is "OCCU".
