If this is posted someplace please direct me to it. I used TMG, did the transfer over to RootsMagic 7, did it several times, trying to get as much information to transfer over as I could. But one area is bothering the heck out of me ... the Social Security Number (SSN), it has the field for description and has a date field. All of my data on everyones Social Numbers put the number into the description box, that part is ok.
BUT ... the date for whatever reason on all the transfers I did, is not correct it is like only half a date, and it put "abt" in front of all the dates. The program (RootsMagic) will not allow me to correct the date field entry. I would say that at least 90% of them have a date like, "abt 23 Jul" , when I had "23 Jul 1950". That is what transferred over and the program will not allow me to correct the date. It does let me type in a correct date, but it does not change in the person's screen, on the person screen the date stays "abt 23 Jul". The only thing I have been able to do, is to delete the transferred SSN entry and make a totally new one, that is the only way I have found to correct it. I am hopeful that someone has an easy solution to this, because I have hundreds if not maybe a thousand people that I need to get this corrected on.
