Family File Information Report

   To print the Family File Information Report:
1. From the File tab on the Ribbon bar, choose File Properties.
2. From the Family File Information window, click Report.
3. Set the options, as described below.
4. Click either Print or Preview to view the report.

The Family File Information Report shows general information about the current Family File.  This includes the name and location of the current Family File, and how many individuals, families, surnames and source entries it contains.

The information on the Family File Information window can be printed with the following options:


Shadowed Boxes
Includes a drop-shadow box to create a 3D effect.

Compiler Information
Includes your name, address and phone number on the report.  This is useful if you are sending the report as part of a technical support request.

Include Date
Prints the current date.

Include Customer Number
Prints your Deluxe Edition Customer Number.

You can view and edit the current compiler information on the Compiler tab.

Where to Send the Report
The report can be output to two formats.  Make your choice by clicking on the appropriate option button in the lower right.  The choices are:
  • Screen / Printer - Sends the report to either the Print Preview window or directly to your printer depending on whether you click the Preview or Print button.
  • PDF File - Generates the report, displays it in the Print Preview window and then creates an Adobe PDF (Portable Document File) file.  This file can be viewed with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader and easily sent to other people by e-mail.  (This feature is part of the Deluxe Edition only.)

    When you have set all the options, click either the Preview button to see an on-screen view of the report before it is actually printed, or click Print to have the report sent directly to the printer.
