I am paying the price for adding earlier families to my database (rather than later ones) indicating that they are the same as existing families where approriate and then letting RM6 ask me to confirm that the others are new entries to the datebase. Only the last entry (ie immediately prior to the existing database entry) was added to the database as the 'same person' as the existing entry. All but the last seem to have worked out their proper relationship by themselves and were not added as unique entries, whereas the last entry added the new data under their own record numbers. I need to tell RM6 that this last couple and one child are already known but don't have their own record numbers - so merging doesn't work. Anyone know how to do this please? Or do I just ignore that these last three people have been added as they have as it doesn't appear to otherwise interfere with the program's operation; they are just entered as a 'second lot' to the existing family in RM6.
