Hello,

It seems there has been some changes in the 'excel import' option in Ver 3.0! What has changed?

Important: There certainly is a new worksheet 'Places' (in addtion to the usual worksheets of person, events etc). If it is left blank (except for the header) the data does not appear to transfer correctly. What needs to be done?

Help!

Hi,

You are right, there is now a new worksheet in the Excel import/export file.
This worksheet is used to save or reload data about "Places". Those Places are used to store the names and GPS coordinates for the frequently used locations. This make sure that you will always use the same spelling for their names, and also allow to show the geographical locations of those places on a map.
The bug that you have seen is that Places where shown in the Repository Excel tab, and vice-versa.
This is now solved in the V3.0b currently on-line.

Hi,
Thank you so much!
Does the new excel import 'format' also affect the Mergedb program?
(I normally use it to merge a 'new' database with my own database)

I have just modified the MergeDB program to merge also the new "Places" table introduced in SmartGenealogy V3.0
If you want to avoid a complete re-installation of SmartGenealogy, you can download only this modified version (V1.2) of MergeDB, which is a separate program, here : http://alainlecomte.free.fr/autres/MergeDB.zip

Please, let me know if you discover a problem while using it.
