The whole purpose of this import was to give you practice and give you
familiar data to look at while you poked around in TMG. If you mess it
up, there are thousands just like it waiting to be imported. <grin>
I could not wait to get started fixing my imported data set. Had I
taken my time and experimented until I got a better import, I might
have wasted a few days but saved myself weeks of cleanup. You have
been using FTM and you are familiar with that program. If you have to
use FTM for new entries for a few weeks more, it will not make a big
difference. However, that time spent getting familiar with TMG basics,
and seeing how your FTM data imports, can make a big difference when
you start fixing your final import.
I am not sure how to recover from that situation. My first instinct
would be to close and reopen TMG. If that does not work, reboot the
computer. If these don't work, let us know.
