Has anyone found a way to list or print unused places? If you list every event which an occurrance took place, the unused locations do not show up. I have too many locations to do a query on each individual place. Thanks, Bernie Cooper

You CAN export a complete GEDCOM file and import it into another blank database. The unused places do not come along.

Either compare the place lists, and delete the ones not listed in the new database or use the new database.

It is possible that some TO DO items, Addtesses and/or repository links may not transfer with the GEDCOM, so check it out before abandoning the old database. The newer the version, the less things get lost, I don't remember exactly what, if anything, is still omitted.
