I only have Family Tree Maker 2017 and it will not create a FTM 2014 file, only a FTM 2014.1 file which RM7 will not import.  I have nearly 1,000 media items which the GEDCOM file will not handle.

 

Do you have a work around for this issue?

 

Thanks,

 

Jim

The GEDCOM contains the full filename which is all that RM needs. It doesn't import the Media files; it just links to where the GEDCOM says they are. Have you done the import?

Thanks Tom.  It worked perfectly.  I was completely unaware that the media would be imported as well.

 

Thank you again,

 

Jim

Just remember that the media files have not been copied or moved. They are still in the FTM media folder.
