wall chart report hangs up

10 December 2004 - 08:05 PM

I've comeback to RM after several months because I had a request for a Roots Magic Wall Chart report. When I clicked on Wall Chart I got a dialog box titled "Generating Printout" with the message "Linking people: 18". The program is now hung up and I have to cancel RM Chart to get back to RM. I ran this wall chart report before on this database and had no problems. All other reports are working with this database.

I have tried the following to once again to get wall chart report to work.

1. Uninstalled the RM program from the MS control panel and reinstalled RM from the CD.

2. Reindexed the database.

3. Deleted the database and restored the database from the backup ZIP file I keep on Iomega zip disks.

Any insight as to what's going on would be appreciated.

Select Existing Person

I click on 'Select Existing Person' to see if there is an existing person. If there isn't the existing person and I click Cancel, I have to click ADD+ again rather than just going back to previous screen to 'Add New Person'.

Record Numbers

reference: Manual, Getting the Most Out of RootsMagic, 2nd Edn.-Bruce Buzbee, pg.17.

Describes "New Database Options". You are given a choice of (rec. nbr, ref. nbr or none) to be displayed on the main screen.

As a newbie to RootsMagic I selected 'none'.

I now find it would useful to display and print in reports the 'rec. nbr'. How can I after hundreds of entries do this?

Note: Further down on pg. 17 it says, "Don't worry if you aren't sure which settings you want to use. You can always change them later". However, I can't find anywhere in the Manual how to "change them later"
