Why not create (in PRINT REPORTS/BOOKS) a "Modified Register(Descendancy)" report and save as "Print to File"? It will be saved as a "Rich Text File" (RTF) which can be opened in Word. That way you could copy that to a diskette and send it on to him. Perhaps with the suggestion he "downloads" PAF 4 and saves himself a lot of trouble and heartache :-). Can't believe that someone so serious about research isn't using at least one good program, especially when one, like PAF, is free!
