Why should "Friends" be displayed in a Descendant Chart???? They are not
related. Or am I missing something here???

| Hi Richard,
| As far as I understand, I cannot produce report - by now - so I cannot
| the date formats in reports, unless you mean charts.
| Nevertheless I would have liked, if I were able to see the 2 januar 2002
| Danish format) instead of 02 Jan 2002 date, or 02 Oct 2002 instead of 2
| oktober 2002 (in Danish format - controlled by the setting in the
| International setting in the Control Panel!!!!).
| Concerning Friends I had expected, that when they were in the TMG database
| as Friends, they were also displayed in the VCF as Friends, but apparently
| they are not.
| Why do I have to add that in the VCF? I have already done it once in TMG,
| and they are registered there as Friends??!!
| Where are the advantages of TMG compared to other Genealogy programs?

| How are you using the term "Friends"? In the sense that a couple had
| no formal relationship but had child(ren)? If you mean in a non
| genealogical sense, like my friend lives next door, you would have to

| Since you have questions about VCF and I can not answer them, I will
| modify the subject for my reply to better attract the attention of
| someone who does use VCF.
