No specifics were given.

However, this did work (for one person thus far). I saved the GEDCOM using RM Export function. I brought that GEDCOM into Family Tree Maker Ver 9; it imported w/out problem into .FTW format. I then used FTM9 to save its file to GEDCOM with "PAF" option. THAT FILE was sent to my contact, and it imported w/out problem.

I have asked that person if she can clarify the error she received.

We need more details on why they are not successful in importing into PAF. Is there an error message, etc.?
