Re: Transferring custom birth tag

Mike Tate

If they really are standard Birth (BIRT) events then the Main tab should show the Born date.

So may be the conversion is not what you thought.

Exactly what options did you choose?

A screenshot of the Plugin would help but that becomes slow on this Email forum.

Thanks for sticking with me. I downloaded the Plugin, ran it and changed the custom birth tag to Birth, and saw 156 changes as expected. The changes appear in the Facts tab. I'm missing something obvious. What do I do next to have the 156 changed birth tags appear in the Main tab window so each individual shows their birth date after Born:?
