Usage:

To set _User IDs_ for all tagged individuals in your Legacy database according to the MRIN Filing System:

  1. Open your database in Legacy.
  2. Decide which of the 9 individual tags you plan to use for this operation.
  3. Untag any individuals that you don't wish _LTools_ to update.
  4. Now tag the individuals whose _User IDs_ you wish to populate according to the MRIN Filing System.
  5. Back up your Legacy database.
  6. Open your Legacy database in _LTools_.
  7. Double-click MRIN Filing Assistant in the Deluxe LTools tree to bring up the dialog for this LTool.
  8. Select the Individual Tag you used in Step 4.
  9. Change the MRIN Separator to any character you wish to use.
  10. Check Always include parent's MRIN if desired.
  11. Select the Action that you wish applied to the individual _User IDs_ and enter any optional Text.
  12. Click the Run button.
  13. _LTools_ will set the _User IDs_ for all tagged individuals in your database in accordance with the MRIN Filing System. This process may take a few minutes if you have a large database with many tagged individuals.

NOTE: If the individual is married, _LTools_ will populate the individual's _User ID_ field with the MRINs for each of the marriages associated with that individual, after applying the optional Text. If the person is not married, _LTools_ will populate the individual's _User ID_ with the MRINs of the individual's parents, after applying the optional Text. If the individual has two sets of parents, both MRINs will be included.

Fields:

uri/../images/bluepin.gif Individual Tag

The tag you used in Legacy to mark the individuals whose _User ID_ you wish to populate in accordance with the MRIN Filing System.

uri/../images/bluepin.gif MRIN Separator

The separator that is used to delineate multiple MRINs when more than one marriage is involved. The default is "/".

uri/../images/bluepin.gif Always include parent's MRIN

Check this box if you wish to always include the MRIN of the individual's parents. If unchecked, a married individual's _User ID_ will only include the MRINs of his or hers own marriages. The default is unchecked.

uri/../images/bluepin.gif Action

Choose whether you wish to Fill all tagged Individual User IDs with Text + MRIN(s), Only fill blank tagged Individual User IDs with Text + MRIN(s), or Clear all tagged Individual User IDs. The default is Fill all tagged Individual User IDs with Text + MRIN(s).

uri/../images/bluepin.gif Text

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 an individual _User ID_ that looks like "SMITH (1234)". If you enter a string in the Text field that does not contain {MRIN}, all individual _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}". The default is {MRIN}.

uri/../images/bluepin.gif Rows affected
