Genealogy My Documents Link 
Anthony P Mitchell

Hello Richard, I am getting through building the Genealogy database, struggle sometimes but learning all the time. It is absolutely fantastic just what I have been trying to build for a number of years. I have one question, "My Documents", do I still need to make this an Attachment in my Datebase or a Short Text. I think I have missed some thing? (Sorry)

You can leave the Documents as attachments if you want. I end up switching the Pictures over to Short Text because it's better that way in the long run (and there's a bug in Access we have to work around). I strongly recommend making EVERYTHING external files and NOT using the attachment type, but if you want to, it's OK for now. I'll be doing more with this in Part 2.

Header Control Box Settings Link

Richard, I must apologise for asking this question, I should know the answer! In a number of your forms, the header control box your text is centralised, for example your form PersonF, and some of your background colours are also changed to black. Are the settings in the property tables, if so where, please give me a clue. Thank you.

I'm not following you. Could you point out a specific video and time index so I can see what you mean. What do you mean by "header control box?" As far as colors go, no, those are never set in the table. Colors and other formatting are specified in form design.

Sorry for my lack of knowledge; Genealogy Seminar Part 1, Video = Calculate Age, Lesson 4. If you look at the form ""PersonF" that is being developed (Time 2:21). the very top section, above the form and page header. How do you centralise the word "PersonF" and how do you change the colour in this section?

Richard I lost something in the Genealogy files when we made the change from attachments to link.  Everything is working fine up to the point in there are no pictures the tree gets refresh but the old pictures remain like it looks for something to put in and when there is no picture it fails to remove the old.  if you did a fix let me know if not where do I go.  I'm on lesson 9 Should I wait to the end and see if this bug was fixed?  asfor the name in the field stay with married.  this will make folks go to the life events... LOL   Read More...

Pictures: I think this was fixed in lesson 11 with the bug fixes.

Names: I've been using married names in mine and listing maiden names after them. I'm going to add more fields in Part 2 so that you can type in either and if you add a married name it will add that as a life event for you. As I've been using the database more for my OWN personal use, I've come up with lots of enhancements like that which I want to add.
