When I edit the Addressee name it does not update the Reports Address List or Address Labels.

If I go to the Edit Person tab, add an address personal: Primary Address or Secondary Address, or Family Address. Then I want to update the person or family’s name I select the Address Tab and Edit address button and change the Addressee name.

It updates the name change in the main screen Address Button’s Person address, Family address and all addresses. But not when I select Reports, Lists, Address List or Address Labels. The original Addressee name still appears.

Is there a fix for this? I already tried a Rebuild indexes, Pack Database, it did not help. Is there a way to update the name without clearing the address and re entering it?

Thanks Alfred for the quick reply, I, m running 2.04a, the "-- As entered in address dialog" option fixed the problem for me.

What version of RootsMAgic are you running?

Help > About RootsMAgic: should tell you

With RootsMagic 2.04a, I see a choice of four addresses to print and a choice of three name formats:
-- Surname, Given (Doe, John)
-- Given Surname (John Doe)
-- As entered in address dialog

Editing the address itself would only change the last one of these report choices.
