As Don and I have said, for export purposes, the Preferences--Dates--"When
no death event. . " is the place where an individual's living status is
determined. There doesn't seem to be a way to discover whether a
particular individual is considered "living," if that's what you want.
And as I reported yesterday, the Preferences and Export options worked
CORRECTLY for me. When "When no death event. ." = 100 AND "Living
individuals" = omit on the Export-Data Content tab were both selected, NO
individuals born after 1904 were exported. It didn't matter whether the
living flag was checked. These settings determined export status.
For other purposes, e.g., reports, I'm not sure how "living" is defined. I
haven't been able to find anything on that in the Help file.
Hope this helps,
