I am trying to create a report that lists all the notes that I have added to a FACT I created named "OBITUARY." I want to create a custom report that lists only the obituaries. I have managed to identify the individuals who have an obituary that isn't blank. When I run the report, I get a list of the approximately the correct number of obituaries. The problem is that they are blank. What did I do wrong?

Did you ask for the "Obituary note" as the field in one column of your report?

For others that may not be familiar with working with custom reports:

Choose Name and [Fact note] as fields when creating the report.

For a report for a fact note, Select from a list, Filter the report by [Fact], note, is not blank. Or if you want fact notes that are blank, use [Fact], note, is blank.

You could also create a Group before you create the Custom report using the same filter and use the Group to filter the report.

The following was overheard at a recent high society party...
"My ancestry goes all the way back to Alexander the Great," said one lady. She then turned to a second woman and asked, "How far does your family go back?"
"I don't know," was the reply. "All of our records were lost in the flood."
