Yes, That does sound like a good idea. <G> She says trying to think of other
uses. <LOL>

Any information I give that you can't find in your version of TMG 5.1 is
probably due to customization on my part.

Subject: [TMG] TIP OF THE DAY-Sentence Variables in Data fields.

As most of you are aware by now, I tend to find *very* odd ways to get TMG
do what I want it to do...this particular one may help others.

A while back someone asked how to get a list of people in order of exact age

at death- well, I found a way!

It seems that variables are allowed in data fields so on the death tag I
put [AE] in the Long/Lat field and then make the sentence "[P] died [D] [L]
at age [L9]". This allows me to run a list of people with one of the output
columns as the Long/Lat field and marked to sort on that filed.

I'm sure a certain Lady in Tennessee will find TONS of uses for this! {It
also works in the other fields)
