<< Could someone instruct me, in great detail, on creating a report? UFT
I transferred all my data from) seems to have lost some of my place names.
When I checked my place list I found a place listed as "place missing in
library". So, I need to create a list of every person who has a place name
of "place missing in library" so I can correct it. I can't seem to get this
report created, due mostly to lack of experience with the program. >>
I use a List of Events report (which I titled "List of Events in a Place"),
with the focus:
Place Contains [?]
and the output columns:
Tag Type Label
Prin1 ID #
Prin1 Last, Given
This not only gives you the person, but also the event that contains whatever
place name (or partial name) that you enter.
In your case, I'd use that report, entering "place missing" or "in library"
when prompted for a place name. Several times when I've imported data, some
non-place information has found its way into the place list. This report
helps me correct it.
