A while back, you said that you saw the information in the sidebar.
What happened to that? you should be able to click on someone in that sidebar and they will show up in one of the main views, Pedigree, Family, Descendant or People.
Once you get the RootsMagic program running on your computer, you have to go to the File menu and OPEN your family database.
If you have been having problems, you have probably created more than one database so you may have to use RootsMagic's "Search for a file" feature there.
Windows allows you to double click on a program and open that program, then you can load your date.
OR you can double clidk on most data and, if the file association is set, your data calls the program it uses, opens it and loads itself into it.
It sounds like you sometimes choose to open the RootsMagic program and other times choose the family database to load and open into RootsMagic.
There is an option in RootsMagic, Tools -- Options -- Program Options, that if checked will, upon opening RootsMagic open the database(s) which were loaded when you last closed the program.
If you have ever had your information showing in RootsMagic OPEN it, you DO NOT import it again. If you import again, you will probably end up with duplicates.
Alfred, is there any way we can "talk" without using this forum as we will never get this settled if we don,t. Joe
