Decided on your advice and did a permissions repair. (First time ever). And it now lets me COMPACT the file without crashing!! Thank You.Have not tried to link on line yet to see if it still crashes.
But.. seems it has not resolved the fact information *entered many times, will not "stay", and some names now say "unknown"
And if I merge with another person, no information shows in what is on my (left) side compared with the right hand side.
But anyway, I feel you have helped heaps more than the Help Line, who simply said after viewing my Crash Report, they had no idea when they could fix it!!!!
Thanks a million
