Renee, please look at my second post 21 March, 9:42PM.
There has to be >0% match in the examples in my two posts. I have several files started at different times that I'm trying to compare and I'm mostly getting 0%. (The files contain many of the same persons.) If the matches were >0% then I could copy facts etc. between files.
If nothing else, what if the user could manually match, then the compare function would allow copying facts, sources, etc.
First of all, in my first post, I've correct "UID" to "RIN". So below, following each name I have the RIN just as RM shows it.
Laura, I'm not sure what you mean "Did you check the matches or just the 0%"
Anyways, I created 3 new data bases, each with the same three people: Andrew Hedberg, Emma Stromberg, and son Herman Hedberg. The parents have a marriage fact but no date or place. There are no other facts: no birthdates, no alternate names, nothing.
Database1 entered child, then father then mother
Database2 entered father, then mother, then child
Database3 entered father, then mother, then child (exact same as Database 2)
First comparison (same data, different order of entry):
