One major resource I use for events that I enter in my ACOM tree are newspaper articles. I have added over 4000 newspaper references into my ACOM tree and have manually added them as source citations. I find or add the Source in the pick list and complete the Citation field (required) with the page where the article is to be found and then add the publication date in the date field. Unfortunately when I complete a FTM 2012 sync, the information in the date field is not copied into FTM 2012 so I now have 4000+ event sources showing a publication and page # but no date. Pretty useless when preparing charts and reports that include source references.

Any suggestions as to how to get the date field in my source citation to copy over to FTM 2012 would be appreciated (Other than the obvious one of reentering the date of the 4000+ articles into the Citation field).

You may get a better range of responses if you post this on the Sofware board, under the FTM sub-board. There are a lot of regulars on that board who have a great deal of expertise.

I initially posted my query on the FTM Software board but also added it to this board as I'm not sure if the issue is a) exporting tree from AMT; b) importing tree into FTM 2012; or, c) both. I have also sent a message to FTM Tech Support as it's unlikely that discussing the issue on the Rootsweb boards would generate a response from Ancestry.com.
