In Topic: Source Templates To Be Fixed

03 February 2019 - 06:18 PM

The Vital Records (state, registers) source template for the Footnote is as follows:

[Jurisdiction]<, [Agency]><, [Series]><, [BookID]><: [Page]><, [EntryNo]><, [PersonID]><, [Date]><;[Repository], ><[RepositoryLoc]>.

There is no space between the [Date] and the [Repository] fields. There should be.

Correction needed for Source Template – Interview, privately held.

In Source Details>Format. The entry, such as ‘written notes’, does not need the first letter to be capitalized when it appears in the Footnote, where it follows a comma, but it does need to be capitalized in the Bibliography where it follows a period – and it is not capitalized.

OR

Should the period be changed to a semicolon and the format entry first letter remain low case?

The same applies for the Source Type Interview.


In Topic: SQLite Error 1 - SqlDatabase: Cannot perform this operation on a closed database

I just started to have the same problem (15 Dec 2018). Initially got the the error:   SQLite Error 1 - no such collation sequence RMNOCASE . I had to use Task Manager to get out of the program. Tried reloading RM program but no better. Now getting the:  SQLite Error 1 - SqlDatabase: Cannot perform this operation on a closed database, and have to close prgm with Task Manager.. What should I do?

I have disconnected from Ancestry - Tools>File Options>Ancestry>Disconnect from Ancestry Tree - and the problem has disappeared - no more Name Index flickering and can now backup. Problem appears to be due to Ancestry, and perhaps other genealogy DB, connections.

Suggestion for repairing source template.

Concerning the "Interview, Privately held" source template. For the Format statement in the Bibliography text, the first letter of the first word should be capitalized. At present, the Format field entry such as: written notes and e-mail. is proceeded by the Record Date which ends in a period.

 

Example: McDonell, Margaret Jane. Ottawa. Telephone interview and e-mail by Michael G. Baird, 2017. written notes and e-mail. Privately held by ....

 

The same Format field is used in the Footnote and follows a semicolon and so does not need to be capitalized.
