Problems with Date of Death in Reports

I purchased FTM 2012 more than a year ago but only installed it a couple of months ago on my laptop. My problemm is that everywhere there is a date of death in a report, the same person's data appears overriding the indivual being listed.

As background, a long story which I won't include here but my old desktop computer had died some time ago and I had been unable to use the USB ports to backup files for more than a year before that. I eventually gave up just used an old FTM backup as the starting point for FTM 2012.

One of the first people I added while I was still trying learn how to use to FTM 2012 was my paternal grandmother's sister who I had just learned as born and died in 1897. I believe I was on the "individual" page when I was trying to her date of death as a fact. Since then I have added a lot of other individuals and their dates of death but usually do it from the "family" page.

I recently tried to generate a couple of reports for the first time and noted that whenever a date of death was included for any individual, the report listed my great aunts name and date of death.

I tried deleting my great aunt and this still occurs. It is as if her death fact overides any other date of death fact. I am running FTM 2012 on Windows 7. Any suggestions?
