In Topic: Relationship to Root Person in Custom Reports

Renee - your trick for placing a relationship code in the Reference Number is OK for tiny databases, but not for large databases. It is laborious to do this for 10,000 individuals. The information exists, so why not make it available (as suggested in the beginning of this discussion thread) in custom reports?

Thanks, Jerry. I read a cryptic note from a persion who saw one of the Version 8 demos, describing an improvement that makes RM more Ancestry-like in the search for information and that will help us add directly from Ancestry into our trees within RM, allowing us to bypass the use of TreeShare to seek for stuff in Ancestry, update the Ancestry tree and then continue with the cumbersome process of synchronizing the RM database with the Ancestry tree.


The dilemma is:  RM doesn't realize that TreeShare is next to useless without Global Update. However, if version 8 moves an Ancestry-like use of Hint functionality into RM, then the lack of Global Update doesn't matter.
