Thanks Kevin! That's the issue with using acronyms.
Jimmy - Just reading the information provided in the link by Kevin, it should be pretty straight forward. Since it is apparently a plain text file you should be able to import it to Access with minimal issues.
Have you tried it?
The last few Developer courses deal with files and input / output. I freely admit I've been so busy at work I'm behind in the course work myself, but it might be in reading the course pages that those courses will help you as well with this.
Good morning Gents!, my Genealogy Database is looking good but I now have another issue that I am struggling with, if you could help or point me in the right direction. For each person in my tree, I have put their relationship For example, (1st Cousin) to me in a drop-down box, and I am the "Home Person". What I want to do now is run a report when required to show that persons relationship to me, for example, Charles Mitchell (Grandfather); Bill Mitchell (Father); Paul Mitchell (Home Person). I am struggling with the query for this issue knowing that the report will be different for each person, please advise, many many thanks.
Hello Richard, I would like to report to show a list, with each person,s name that has a relationship with the home person. This relationship must also be identified. (e.g. 1st Cousin) The list must show the selected person, with the relationship title in descending or ascending order to the Home Person. This report will be different for each person. Thank you.
I managed to change my breeding database to the concept of the Genealogy database and it seems to work out much better. I do have a problem at this stage and I struggle to find where I went wrong.Read More... I managed to get to the point where the directories were created for the photos and even have the photos for each individual in the personal directories. The MyPicture field has the name of the photo of each individual. The issue is: I start at record 1, choose the picture for that individual and it shows up on the screen. When I scroll to the next record, the photo from the previous record still shows up although the MyPicture filename is the name for the current record's photo. Once I closed the windows and re-open it again the photos are not showing although the MyPicture shows the correct filename for each record. I have screen shots if it will make it easier for you.
Does this problem occur in my (the sample) database? If it's just in your database that you've built, then you're probably missing an event. Check the OnCurrent event. I believe that's where the picture is swapped when you open the form or move from record to record.

Thank you for your reply, Richard. I did not add the current_form event and it is working perfect know.
My other question regarding the search button on the PersonF form, are you looking at that?
There is no search on PersonF. On the Person List form there are search boxes at the bottom. It's all working perfectly for me, and no other users have complained. I suspect it may be something on your system. Walk me through SPECIFICALLY isn't working. Include a screen shot if you can (click on the Upload Images) link above.
