14-Nov-2011 Correction for workfile record number 6218. It should say 'Sort Name' and not 'Last Name'
22-Aug-2011 Longer Workfile file. Added a few more lines. It still says version 1.34 on the screen, but the workfile goes to line 7277 with this update.
19-Aug-2011 I changed the word Move to Copy on the Compare screen for all the buttons. Since the database on the right does not change, the word Copy is better. The Workfile currently still has Move, but when you translate, you should use the word for Copy.
08-Aug-2011 Longer Workfile file. See BKWords6.DOC for more information.
Note to translators about the Custom Wording on Book Reports: you can COPY the file called English-CustomWording.DTA file to a new file name with your language name instead of English and then the program will use that file. Then on the Book reports, press F9 and you can translate the words in the white textbox areas. (Do that for each event) After you translate the default custom words, if you are the BK translator for that language, you can send the .DTA file to John to be included in the install program.
I need to clarify the help line for Workfile record numbers 6261 and 6262: Line 6261 is [name of spouse] when the name on the left is male and the spouse is female. Line 6262 is [name of spouse] when the name on the left is female and the spouse is male.

I have changed the translation for Workfile record numbers 5713 - 5718 to the following: Word 2007 will not automatically resize all the pictures to 1 inch the way Word 2002 did. So click a picture, and then on the top menu click Format and then on the right of the ribbon, in the area that is called Size, type a 1 in the Height field and press the Enter key. That will set the size of that picture to 1 inch tall.

16-Feb-2007 Note to translators: Windows Vista will require a different type of help files. It will not read the normal .HLP files but will require .CHM files. Some of you are using VB HelpWriter to make the .HLP files and that program will not make .CHM files. Please contact John Steed about whether you already have a newer help authoring program that will make the .CHM files. The .CHM files will work with Windows 98 or Me or 2000 or XP or Vista. The current version of BK 6.2 will show the .CHM help file if it exists, or the older .HLP file otherwise.
14-Feb-2007 New help page: 'Attach picture to source' is context ID 4596
05-Feb-2007 Use workfile record 3730 for the new line on GEDCOM, Export 'This is the list of events to export'

10-Dec-2006 New help page: Ancestor Fan Chart is context ID 4599
On workfile line 4833 where it says Parents, that is the first of 4 lines you can use for the parents generation on the Fan chart. Then on line 4837 where it says Grand that is the first of 4 lines for grand parents. You can use 1 line or 2 or 3 or 4 for each generation. If your words are long, then use more than 1 line. You can also make a longer line, for example you could put 'grand parents' on line 4837 and leave 4838 blank. If you do that, and the words are so long that they go into the previous or next column, then you could leave the first line blank in 4833 or 4841 and use the second line for those columns. You can see what looks best for your language.

(new 21-Jan-2005) If your workfile has line 4437 blank, then enter your translation for the word "Witness" and versions of BK6 after 21-Jan-2005 will use that word at the bottom of Group sheets or Book reports before the names of the witnesses. Also if line 4434 is blank, then enter your translation for the words "see witness". If you already have the 18-Jan-2005 Word6set.exe file, you do NOT need to download it again, just add the word on line 4437 and on line 4434
21-Jan-2005 bkupdate.exe on the .NET web site - added "see witness" from workfile line 4434
20-Jan-2005 bkupdate.exe on the .NET web site - made some small changes on the Global Change of Ref Number screen and fixed a problem on the heading of Split Database screen.
(new 18-Jan-2005) The workfile is longer. The new lines in the workfile will work with BK 6.1 (dated 18-Jan-2005) Get BKUPDATE.EXE from the www.bkwin.NET web site.
When you run 1.13 have it make the changes from the xx6 workfile, and print the changes.
