Error when Merging

25 October 2015 - 04:44 PM

I keep having the same issues when using the duplicate merge finder.  When trying to merge I get the error Database is locked and its been going on since I bought RM7.  I have the latest updates and have used all the database tools but still get error messages.  Only way I can merge is manually.  I have reinstalled the program and even have it on two different computers and still same issue.

auto merge doesn't work

20 December 2014 - 10:06 AM

I tried to auto merge two mostly identical databases but not one person was merged!  Identical sources were not merged either.  I have run auto merge several times but no luck merging.  Manual merge works but is so SLOW,  Rootsmagic 3 is much faster, which is why I hadn't switched to RM4 yet.  I see no reason to upgrade to the new RM7 from what I have seen with RM4 working so much worse than RM3.  RM3 will not export a gedcom so I finally had to upgrade but I need a program that can handle a large database and not be extremely slow like RM4 in just bringing up a screen.  Any suggestions or tips on how to fix the merging problems or another genealogy software program that does good auto merges?
