I have 2 custom tags in TMG: one for godmother and one for godfather. They are set up as "Other Event". I have put the godparents names in the TMG memo field. When I import them into RM, the tags appear ok but the details field is empty. I can only get the actual names over if I move the data in TMG from the memo field to the Detail field prior to import and then it shows up in the "Place" field.

Yet for the standard tag of "Occupation" in TMG (which is also an "Other Event"), like above, I put the information in the memo field and it flows into RM appropriately into the "Detail" field.

How can I fix this so that the godparents name show up in the "Detail" field or is that something I'll have to fix when and if I migrate to RM?

In this case, the TMG tag memo should be imported to the RootsMagic fact note field.

 

There is a SQL routine that can be used to move the text in the Note field to the Description field for a selected fact type (as long as the text is 100 characters or less).

http://sqlitetoolsfo... to Description

 

This will accomplish what you want.

I never would have found that routine.  That worked for me!  TYVM!
