To set marriage _User ID_s in your Legacy database to the MRIN value:

  2. Decide which of the 9 marriage tags you plan to use for this operation.
  3. Untag any marriages that you don't wish _LTools_ to update.
  4. Now tag the marriagesĀ whose _User ID_s you wish to populate with MRINs.
  5. Back up your Legacy database.
  6. Open your Legacy database in _LTools_.
  7. Double-click Set Marriage User IDs in the Standard LTools tree to bring up the dialog for this LTool.
  8. Select the Marriage Tag you used in Step 4.
  9. Select the Action that you wish applied to the marriage _User ID_s and enter any optional Text.
  10. Check Pad MRIN with leading zeroes if desired.

The tag you used in Legacy to mark the marriage records whose marriage _User ID_ you wish to populate with the MRIN.

uri/../images/bluepin.gif Action

Enter any optional text that you wish to add to the MRIN. The substitution string {MRIN}, including the curly braces, is used to specify where in the Text to place the MRIN. For example, if you enter "SMITH ({MRIN})" in the Text field, _LTools_ will generate a marriage _User ID_ that looks like "SMITH (1234)". If you enter a string in the Text field that does not contain {MRIN}, all marriage User IDs will be populated with that exact string ... in other words a constant. If you leave the optional Text blank, _LTools_ will behave as if you entered "{MRIN}".

uri/../images/bluepin.gif Pad MRIN with leading zeroes

Check this box if you wish to pad the MRIN that is inserted in the marriage _User ID_ with leading zeroes. _LTools_ will pad all MRINs with zeroes so that they equal the length of the longest MRIN in the database.
