I am starting a new database and would like to bring the sources from an old database.

Anyone got some quick easy way to do this? I am using RM7

Thanks
Roger

There is a provided way of doing this File > Import lists. You then pick which lists to import and then the file that you wish to import from.

If you have customized program defined fact default sentences in the old program, you will need to enter them again in the new program.

:rolleyes: Doh! 

 

I've been creating a dummy person, attaching the source and then dragging the person across.

Don't feel bad. This is a new feature in RootsMagic 7, so you had to do what you were doing earlier.
