Thank you both for your help and ideas. Fortunately, it hasn't been too long since my last update, so this is fixable. I guess I should consider myself lucky for that .
I think the most upsetting and confusing part about all this is that I just cannot understand why Rootsmagic has such "minefields" as this that clearly put our data in jepordy. As you mention, Jerry, this issue has already been brought to the attention of management, probably more than a few times, They are perfectly aware of the issue. Yet, they choose to ignore fixing the issues and instead focus on "features" designed to make the program look better than it is, and lure in more users. I don't begrudge anyone from doing well in business, but I have a difficult time trusting or respecting anyone who would knowingly ignore issues that pose dangers to their customers data.
Where's the integrity in that?
