OK, I clicked print and save. That brought up two minutes of my little hour
glass spinning followed by peoples names preceded by numbers or letters and
much white space. That was the indented decendent report. The ahnentafel
added first generation, second generation.. between every several names.
This took maybe 3 or 4 minutes. If I try to close the report I get "this
program is not responding". The preview IN does work. I have a pentium 4
with 256 MB so I should have enough memory and speed. I'm confused as others
are viewing the reports.
