Thank you for your prompt reply.However, as I was working on this day and night for fear I had lost my data, it occurred to me that one can upgrade in 8.5 from previous version.I had not installed my 4.2 to the new computer and I do like working with it too.I find it simpler than 8.5 and I like their charting.Therefore, after installation on the new computer, I was able to bring my 4.2 file into the 8.5 verson.Voila! now I have two programs to keep current.(I also have FTM).Guess there's always a way if you keep at it.
By the way though, do you know how I can set my 4.2 to my Windows Word program. When I installed it I accidentally checkedWord Pad.I know there is a way to switch it over, but I haven't found the magic button.
Thanks again.It's great to have inter-action on Generations, since we have allbeen abandoned.I still like it above others I have seen.
