Hi

 

Is there a custom report that can be done to get a list of only individual with the "Living" check mark?

 

I've tried to look and tried things but not getting the results I want.

 

Thank you in advance

 

Maurice

If you click on the magnifying glass, for the sear for information, there is a "Living Flag"

 

But I don't get that particular field in the custom report.

I agree that the Living flag should be available for things like Custom Reports and the People View. But it isn't.

 

You can still filter by Living or Not Living in either place. Which is to say that Living Flag is a search option or a mark/unmark option when finding or marking. So for example, make a Named Group of people who are either Living or who are Not Living. Then use that Named Group as the people to display in your Custom Reports or in People View. There won't be a column for the Living Flag, but you will only be seeing either all the Living people or all the Not Living people.

I also agree and would take things a step further in saying all user data entry needs to be available for searching and reporting, there is no point entering quality information when you can't use it further.

Thank you again for your input

 

The reason why I was asking for this field in a report, is that i want to know who is living and is over 100.

 

I probably be guessing that they have passed away, but I do my research before toggling it off.

 

Any which way i can get a report to do this?  Or is RootMagic missing something that would be handy to many folks

 

Living flag would be a yes or a no, and then the other fields I need

 

If I could get only Yes/No, I can bring it into Excel and sort it out that way.

 

Thank you again.

Try creating a Group using the "Living Flag is True" in Mark by data fields. Then you can do a custom report against that Group.

Exactly what I needed

 

I'll write down something in case someone else is looking to do this.

 

Thank you very much
