Family Tree Maker 2012 corrupted place database

Posted: 1 Jan 2014 6:46AM GMT
Classification: Query
I'm trying to clean up my places so that people who lived together show up in the same "tree" in the places database. I have several states in the U.S. that show up twice in the tree. Once, with a few entries in that state and not specific locations, and a second time with entries in that state as well as specific places in the state. When I try to rename the entries that are in the location without any sub entries (ie combine the two instances of the state), FTM blows away all of the individual locations within the state. This happens no matter what order I do it in. I ended up with a few hundred individuals that lost the specific location information.

Luckily I had backed up my tree just before I started this cleanup. Are there any known work arounds to this or am I stuck with the problem?
