Alfred,

Yes, I did try what you suggested but ended up with the same problem - there may be a glitch in my program although all three database tools were run at Renee's suggestion, without making any changes. So, following Renee's suggestion, I have submitted the explanation of what occurred and what I did to try to fix it to the Support people and let them try to find out what happened.

Thanks, as always, for you assistance - surely do wish i understood this program even 1/4 as much as you do - maybe one day.

Alfred,

That would not work using the fact already entered but changing the place details to the correct one. I've tried making that change on the person screen AND I've tried it going to the Lists>Place list to make the correction.

Without deleting the fact with the incorrect Place details information, I reentered the same fact with the correct Place details information (but not adding source and media information). The newly reentered fact had the correct information for place details as I expected, even though I had not deleted the incorrect information in the Lists>Place list.

The place is Chicago, Cook County, Illinois. I have looked at these possibilities and there are no duplications - Chicago, also Cook, also County, also Illinois but the 5552 ? Avenue remains in the details of the Fact area while the correct address 5552 Ellis Avenue is listed in the Place Details in the far right column of the same screen. Short of deleting the whole fact and starting over, I don't see any way to "fix" this. Is this a "bug" perhaps.

Thanks Vyger for your answer to my question - but still have the problem.

Yes, you understood the question and this is what I did. I went to the "Lists>Place List" , then clicked on "Place Details" and deleted the incorrect address. Went out of that screen and back to her screen expecting to see either the wrong address missing or the correct address substituted in the Details column of the Facts listings. No change there - the wrong address is still showing. The correct address remains on the right side of that page under "Census, Place Details" just as before.

Any more suggestions?
