Hi, I have been using Broderbund Family Tree Maker version 5.0 for over 20 years. Found it to be a great program But, last week using my very large file it started to give me problems. If I amend or input any new information it tells me the file is corrupt and shuts down All of my previous info is still intact. I taken it all out via gedcom and tried to put it back in. The problem persists I have loaded it into 2 other programs (which I do not think as good as FTM) successfully Any thoughts or help appreciated White sorry did try to post this under general items but failed

Hmmm - at a guess I would suggest that it may be a capacity problem. I've used Relatively Yours since the very first DOS-based system back in the early 1990s and I think because it was DOS-based it had a limitation of 99,000 entries. The fact that you say you have been using Broderbund for over 20 years might be an indication that you have the same, or at least a similar, problem to mine. Unfortunately RY is no longer supported or available but RYIII is an excellent Windows-based system with no limitations.
