In Topic: To Do List and Research Manager - show who it is for

Renee - I do put a name in the title now but I shouldn't have to, since it's already stored as a field in that table. 

In Topic: Can't Get Ancestry WebHints to Show Up in RM

28 May 2019 - 12:17 AM

Check under Tools, File Options, Web Hints and check that Enable Web Hints is ticked and that Ancestry Web Hints is ticked. Remember to use the OK button to save your choice rather than just closing the box.

In Topic: ODBC Connection to Rootmagic 7

26 May 2019 - 11:32 PM

ODBC driver for SQLite works perfectly with the RootsMagic databases - I use it all the time and use Excel for my reports since I just need the data, not the prettiness that Crystal Reports, SSRS etc. would give. Queries can be developed in SQLite then used in Excel data connections. I use the SQLite3 ODBC driver and SQLite Spy for development and can refresh the Excel reports for "real-time" updates from my RootsMagic. The main thing to remember is to close all Excel and SQLite programs before running a RootsMagic backup otherwise it hangs. Also the Fake RMNOCASE is needed https://sqlitetoolsf...t-in-sqlitespy/

and remembering to add COLLATE NOCASE in your queries for text fields.

In Topic: Template for Initial (or Default) Name for a Master Source

I would really like Jerry's proposed naming from fields, especially for my Parish record sources which have names that include five fields which I have to copy and paste when naming the source.
