Is it possible to include the RIN in a sentence?

 

I have an Identity Fact Type that transferred over from my TMG database. Basically, this is a shared fact that allows me to 'tag' two individuals in my database that I think might be the same person. It uses 2 roles: Principal and Principal2.

 

I finally got the sentences to work.

 

Principal: [Person] may be the same individual as [Principal2].< [Desc].>

 

Principal2: [ThisPerson] may be the same individual as [Person]. [Desc].

 

However, the sentences would be more informative if they included the RIN for each person.

 

For example, I have several land records for a Hampton Crandall in New York. I think this is the same person as Hampton Lillibridge Crandall in my tree. However, I don't have enough evidence to say that they are the same person. Thus, I've added an Identity fact and shared it between the two. Thus, when I have Hampton Crandall open on the screen, I see the Identity fact with the following sentence:

 

Hampton Crandall may be the same individual as Hampton Lillibridge Crandall.

 

Since I have two different Hampton Lillibridge Crandalls in my database (grandfather/grandson), I would like the RIN included in the sentence to help clarify everything.

I forget whether the Tools, File Options setting to display RIN with the name applies for all sentence template variables for people but you could give it a try.

Thanks Tom,

 

I tried that and the # doesn't show. I even tried creating a new fact and sharing it to make sure the sentence was generated after making the change.

If you turn on the display of RIN, it will display in some (but not all?) reports and charts. There is no variable for the RIN in the sentence template language.
