    Not familiar with Legacy I use TMG but you should have an <import> option somwhere.

    Failing that post your query on the appropriate thread here http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php

    SWMBO uses Legacy. Unfortunately she not home for a few hours but I'll let her know you're seeking help
    (morganj): 0 is false and 1 is true, correct?

    I too have Legacy, though haven't explored its huge range of recording options.
    And mine is still 6.
    But there is a Legacy Users Group (Google for it) which is similar to this forum, so your questions can be answered from all around the world - probably more relevant than the rootschat one above?
    It's a join-to-post like this one - also free.

    The following page from the website you downloaded from may be more immediate help. Check out the FAQs.

    Edit: Scroll down the page & all is revealed...

    P,S. I guess this should really be in Chat.
    Mods?

    Thanks for your help and steering me in the right direction.
    I wondered if I should have put this in chat.

    In Legacy 7, click "open family file..." (under "File" on the menu bar) - and open the data file from the earlier version of Legacy.

    The file has a .fdb extension.

    Many thanks. I presume there are no pitfalls to watch for?. Will I still be able to view info in Legacy 6 if necessary?.

    It depends whether files saved in version 7 has extra "features" not viewable in version 6.

    So long as you keep back-ups of the original files, you can't go wrong by experimenting.
