In L7 after vers. 55 sources to be merged must have the same source templateID, (tblSR TemplateID). Basic TemplateID = 0 and ESM source template IDs are positive integers. Using Access we can manually change a basic TemplateID to match that of the ESM source we want to merge it to.
In Legacy: Tag the 2 sources you want to be merged (1 ESM & 1 basic). >From the source list check "show only tagged sources" to verify you have only 1 basic & 1 ESM. Also: For the basic source: Show List > Clear all tag1 > Tag everyone in List.This will help to fill in the citation template later. From File > Save Family File as: BasicSource Close Legacy. Open Access with your main file.fdb. Add the following select query to view tagged sources: SELECT tblSR.IDSR, tblSR.SrcName, tblSR.Contents, tblSR.UseStandard, tblSR.TemplateID, tblSR.SrcTag FROM tblSR WHERE (((tblSR.SrcTag)=1)); Manually make following changes on the select query: Change “TemplateID” of the basic from 0 to equal the positive ID of the ESM. Change “UseStandard” on the basic from 1 to 0. Notice “Contents” of ESM record contains a template but the basic remains blank. Close Access. Open Legacy. Your 2 tagged sources now have the same templateID so they can now be merged or you can wait till you've filled in the source Detail templates. Go through your tagged individuals to fill in citation detail templates, untag Individuals as templates are filled in until all are untagged. Your multimedia will be there, Text/Comments will be there and Recorded date also. If you can't fill in the citation detail template from viewing multimedia or Text/Comments go back to your old BasicSource file. -- Richard Van Wasshnova http://www.gencircles.com/users/vanwasshnova http://gw.geneanet.org/vanwasshnova Legacy User Group guidelines: http://www.LegacyFamilyTree.com/Etiquette.asp Archived messages: http://firstname.lastname@example.org/ Online technical support: http://www.LegacyFamilyTree.com/Help.asp To unsubscribe: http://www.LegacyFamilyTree.com/LegacyLists.asp
