Hi Silverfox3280 - Firstly, thanks for the reply.

As a newbie I went to the help pages (F1) and found the following:

To merge two sources

Click Edit > Manage Sources. The Sources dialog box opens.
From the list, select the source you want to replace.
If you want to see which source citations and facts are linked to the source, click Usage. Click Close when you have finished.
Click Replace. The Replace Sources dialog box opens.
Select the source with which you want to replace the first source.
If you want to see which source citations and facts are linked to the source, click Usage. Click Close when you have finished.
Click Replace. A confirmation dialog box opens.
Click OK. The first source is replaced by the second source.
Click Close to exit the Sources dialog box.

This is what I think you are saying. I guess my thoughts are that if for example both sources relate to the census then logically I would have assumed the "source" would be the same.

All rather confusing if you ask me!
