That was an excellent article, Russ, thanks.However, my problem persists:
1. I compacted both files 2. I ran all suggested utilities (both files) 3. I reindexed both files 4. I exported individuals from both files to new files 5. I exported both files to Gedcom files
Testing after each step showed that the scrambling error persisted.
It seems as if the next thing to try is to reinstall FTM2006.But, of course, out of my multiple versions, this is the only CD that seems to be missing.I did go to Help and Checked for Updates.It says I am up-to-date.
I even considered buying 2008 but after reading the reviews on amazon, I prefer to live with my problem and re-enter the data.
