Subject: Repository Reference (was LAT LONG FIELD)
Date: Fri, 30 Apr 2004 19:59:37 -0400
In-Reply-To: <>


Thanks for correcting my L10 field mistake. Now comes the big question that
we had talked about off list a while back. The Repository Reference field.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but currently I can not run any "List Of" reports
and get this information from the Repository Reference field, in fact I
can't do a List of Repositories? Assuming that people follow the guidelines
for using the Repository Reference field from the various source templates,
such as Cemetery Markers, the only way I can currently get this information
out is to run a journal or some other report that includes sources.

When do we think this will be resolved? Sometime this year, possibly?

The Repository Memo field also does not print.

You mention that you use the Repository Lat/Long field for entering the FHL
film numbers. Why? This would mean that you use a Repository record for
only a single Source (or as many as are on a single film). There are a
number of Source Elements that could be added to the Source Template(s) for
entering the FHL film numbers.

Alternatively, you can use the Repository Reference field for the FHL film
