      Let me make sure we are talking apples-apples. So what you are telling me is that if you, right now, run the Generate ID tool to set the IDs to the NFS ID, that it doesn't put the NFS ID into the ID field?

      Hi Gaylon,

      The problem is that the set ID is not showing up in the ID# field,
      even though it shows up in the FamilySearch ID field.

      My question is whether or not it (the FamilySearch ID) should, since I
      am running the tool to "Set the ID numbers to match the FamilySearch

      Also, the filter is set to All. If you want, I can send you my
      database, and captured images of the windows.

      Thanks for all you do,

      >When you use the "Generate ID Numbers" tool, this simply sets the IDs, using the options you specified, as of right now -- the moment you run this tool. It does not tell AQ to continue setting IDs in the future. So if you have linked 5 people in your file, then run this tool, it will set the IDs for 5 people. If you later link 5 more people, only the original 5 will have their IDs set. When you run the tool again, it will then set the IDs for all 10 of your linked people, but when you link more people, their IDs will not be set until you run the tool again.
