Death Fact not populating in Ahnentafel Report or Smart Stories in FTM 2012

Death Fact not populating in Ahnentafel Report or Smart Stories in FTM 2012

I have created numerous smart stories and ahnentafel reports with my FTM 2012 software from about 5 different trees with no problems. In all cases it populated name, birth, marriage and death facts in the report for all persons included. However....I have one particular tree that will not populate any death facts (but all other facts are populated in the reports). I can't find any obvious difference in any setup options between this problem tree and the other trees.

It's driving me nuts! Anybody know a solution?

Try compacting your file

What happens?

Thanks for the reply John. I compacted the file but still nothing. No death facts. Only name, birth, marriage for all individuals included.

I assume by death facts something like "he died on 30 June 1856 in Brighton, England"?

Do the death facts show up in the Family Group Sheet?

Yes that is correct. Checked the family group sheets; all facts, including the death facts, are displayed,

Ok Try this

Create a new file with only one person in it, [say] the home person of your file that is giving the trouble.

Now do a file merge and merge the offending file into it.

Now merge the one duplicate individual and try the reports

What happens?
