Hi
I am using the latest Legacy 8 programme and would dearly love to get FT Analyzer to work as am writing a book an would like to include statistics.
In layman terms can somebody explain how I should enter Census records for instance. I have tried altering census records to simply UK Census 1841 both in the event and source fields but it is picking nothing up. Moving on to Occupations, I have lots of events marked Occupation but when I search Occupations I get a list of some locations.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks a lot

The documentation contains information on how to create custom facts in Legacy Family tree. https://ftanalyzer.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Legacy%20Family%20Tree&referringTitle=Documentation

In your tree if you are getting locations in the Occupation then it means you are using the location field in your Legacy program for your occupation fact rather than the description field. Most facts should have three fields - Date, Location, Description some will only have Date & Description.
