I see where my problem is. You cannot make those types of changes to any
Name-Var tags, only event tags . . . correct? You can copy a Name- Var
tag, but you cannot assign it to another individual by changing the ID
#. I have created census name tags (Teresa style) and would have loved
to be able to just copy the principle's census name tag and then
reassign to the next person in the household instead of switching to a
new person each time and then created a new tag for each one.
Thanks for the help.
