I just checked. The difference was 8490 for RootsMagic vs. 828 for PAF. Of that number half the PAF files are source files since PAF does not handle sources as well as RootsMagic IMHO. There are other advantages to RootsMagic if you are not working with a huge database. With PAF, it takes me a long time to manually break down the names list since PAF puts all in one list which is impossible with 33,000+ names. RootsMagice breaks down the list and provides an index to the names. I have to do it manually which in my case is now an all day job.
As I said, no one program can be everything for everybody at all times which is why I use 2 different programs. I would say that RootsMagic would fill all my needs if it were not for the huge number of files generated. Perhaps we could put that on a wish list for those of us with a huge database. Otherwise, RootsMagice is the easiest to work with and fills all my needs.
Anyway, I am a happy camper and my problem is solved and I do appreciate the help!
