  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 whose marriages you don't wish _LTools_ to sort.
  4. Now tag the individuals whose marriages you wish to sort. (HINT: If you wish to sort all the marriages in your Legacy database, use Legacy's Advanced Tagging feature to tag everyone in your Legacy database.)
  5. Back up your Legacy database.
  6. Open your Legacy database in _LTools_.
  7. Double-click Sort Marriages by Date in the Deluxe LTools tree to bring up the dialog for this LTool.
  8. Select the Individual Tag you used in Step 4.
  9. To preview the marriages which are missorted before proceeding (recommended), click the Untag Individuals with Sorted Marriages button and return to Legacy and use its _Search_ feature to review the individuals which remain tagged. Untag (in Legacy) any individuals whose marriages you don't wish _LTools_ to sort before proceeding.
  10. If there are still tagged individuals whose marriages you wish to sort, return to _LTools_ and click the Run button.
  11. _LTools_ will sort the marriages of all tagged individuals in your database. Blank dates will sort before non-blank dates.
