I got a rather nasty mail from a family member writing me that a certain "x" was not an only child and that I should stop saying so in our family tree ... 
I'm not sure he was sober when writing this but he has a point anyhow.
So the question is if it is possible to suppress the "he/she was an only child" sentence in the report?

Just found an old (2007) post dealing with a similar issue.
Is the modification of lang.vbs still the way to go?

On reflection I think I prefer to leave this sentence out unless the compiler explicitly states that there are 'No more children' rather than omitting only when 'Possibly more children' or 'To be completed' is indicated for the family.  This should prevent any false assumption in the report.

so change line 975 of Lang.vbs from


                If f.FamilyLine.ID ="NoMoreChildren" Or f.FamilyLine.ID = "" Then Report.WritePhrase StrDicMFU("PhOnlyChild",strGender), PnP(i), ToBe(i), strGender

to 
                If f.FamilyLine.ID ="NoMoreChildren"  Then Report.WritePhrase StrDicMFU("PhOnlyChild",strGender), PnP(i), ToBe(i), strGender

I've changed by source file and so this will appear in the next update.

I just ran a little test with 3.1.0.0 but the sentence still shows.

Not sure how I managed to regress that amendment, the last change to Lang.vbs was March 2019. Blush

Anyway I have put it back in and created a new bundle of report skin templates for inclusion in GenoPro which also includes the revised NL-BE skins you recently published.  Dan has said to me previously that he will create a 'silent update' of GenoPro 2020 in a few weeks time.
