@valleylynn and @Dave,
I think this has to do with the multiplication sign vs. an x. I just changed the multiplication sign to an x on Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Just Plain Crazy') and the parentage now works.

You're right, Evan. Using the math symbol instead of the letter "x" can create havoc in the database.

But I have been typing the same x in each entry?
Ah, there were some that I copied and pasted from the data entry for the plant. What I don't understand is that when those were typed in the x was used?

I just realized that I was not the one that put put that information. And I didn't notice that it was a times x instead of the letter x. How do you do a time x? I don't see it on my keyboard.

I went back through the ones I did today and fixed the ones that had the time x. All is well. : )
