Hi Wim,

Ok, it's working now - it did help when I set the correct parent/family to
partners!. Now, is there a simple/quick way to change all the families (over
1,000) to partners and back again when required? )):

Did you set the correct parentfamily to partners? I tested it and it still
works for me. Tested it also with setting the program- and report-language
to English (UK) in case something was broken there but it still worked there
too.
