[[File:TinyTafel-ReportOptions-defaultsfiltered-51.png|thumb|450px373px|right|Tiny Tafel - Report Options tab - defaultswith custom filter]]The {{man label|Tiny Tafel}} report (ListeEclair) provides a compact way of describing listing the main surnames found in a place and showing what years those surnames were found in that place. It helps Genealogists determine if they might have overlapping research materials that could be shared from a family genealogy, which can be read by humans and matched by computers using a Tafel Matching Systemdatabase
== Usage ==
[[File:TinyTafel-ReportOutput-51.png|thumb|200px|right|Tiny Tafel - Report Options tab - with Custom Place filter]]Select {{man menu|Reports > Text Reports > Tiny Tafel...}} to run the report.
Use {{man label|Select using filter:}} to choose ''Entire Database'' or a an existing Places category [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Custom_Filters|custom filter you have created previously]]. Place [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Define_Filter_dialog|custom filters can be defined]] in the Place category view's Filter gramplet or from the {{man menu|Place Filter Editor}} option in the {{man menu|Edit}} menu.
You can narrow down the geographical locations of the list by using {{man label|Select places individually:}}
From the {{man label|Type of list:}} either use the default '' * Tiny Tafel'' or ''cousingenweb(default)''<br /> Place Name:Surname:Begin Year:End Year* CousinGenWeb<br /> Surname:Place Name
You can {{man label|[x] Include private data}} by default.
==Background==The concept was to catalog areas of interest in genealogical research collections. It was a compromise between rows which can be read by humans and those that can be automatically interpreted by computers using a Tafel Matching System.  This report in Gramps is not in the classic Tiny Tafel format. Rather, it is the same category of encouraging research collaboration. Objectives are collated in a form intended for sharing on the '''[ CousinsGenWeb]''', a French genealogy service circa 2012. The Report output is suitable for pasting into the body of an e-mail or posting to Social Networking Services.  However, the filtering has limited utility. While you could filter to just the Places where a particular group of Ancestor resided, the report still returns rows with ALL surnames logged in those Places, in all eras. You cannot limit to all surnames you've recorded in each place while your Ancestors were also residents. Nor can you limit it to listing just the Surnames in one branch of the Tree. The defaults (without any filters) generated a report running over 24 pages when using the [[Example.gramps|Example.gramps]] sample tree. To winnow down to a single page sample report, an arbitrary custom filter was applied. It uses a {{man label|[[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Filters#Places_Category_2|Places with a reference count of ''<11>'']]}} rule. ''This is a completely useless custom filter for any collaboration goal. But it gave a predictably small report length.''  {{man tip|The English report name uses Loan words from German and French|The term "tafel" is a German word meaning "Table".

Roberts (b. ~1940)[email protected] 7325 Ortega Hills Dr.Jacksonville FL 32244-4631 (904) 317-2768[>The following is summarized from the 2000 article ''What Is A Tiny Tafel Report?'' published on by Jimmy D. Roberts Sr.: The ''Tiny-Tafel for Database Scope Indexing'' article was printed in the April-May-June 1986 issue (vol.5, no.4) of ''[ Genealogical Computing]'' magazine (acquired by Ancestry in July 1886) authored by Paul Arthur Andereck 1928-2007, that magazine's editor. The [ Tiny Tafel] text file specification was developed by Commsoft in 1986. Originally, the <code>.tt</code> text file format had a header with submitter contact identification followed by a simple table of a [[Gramps_{{man version}}_Wiki_Manual_-_Gramplets#SoundEx|SoundEx code]] for the surname, beginning date, end date and the locality.  One of the driving forces in developing the tiny tafel was to implement a very standardized database that could compare tiny tafels and provide a report on matches. The '''Tafel Matching System''' was developed to do this. The original tiny tafel text files were intended for sharing with early online services and [ Bulletin Board Systems] (BBSes). The format evolved as the technology changed. There were a number of bulletin boards around the country that had the Tafel Matching System installed. <pre> N John Smith A 123 Any St. A Anytown, NY 12345 T 212-555-1212 S [email protected] S Z 3 A160 1813*1850*AVERY\ Hampshire, England/Hampshire, England M635 1810*1850*MARTIN\ Armagh, Ireland/Grey County, Ontario, Canada S530 1920*1948*SMITH\ Brock, Saskatchewan, Canada/San Jose, CA, USA W 24 May 1997</pre>The SoundEx codes above are described: [ A160] [ M635] [ S530]  The format began with header lines. Headers contained some basic identification: the researcher's name (N), address (A), and telephone number (T). Following these required lines are optional lines. They can include (S) giving more information about the communication system. For example, it could include an e-mail address and/or Web page address.  The optional lines are followed by a required line (Z), which gives the count of data lines. Those data lines follow (described below), and finally a closing line (W) with the freshness date for the file. The data lines might contain:<table><tr><th align=right>data description</th><th>&bull;</th><th align=left>format</th></tr><tr><td align=right>Soundex code for surname</td><th>&bull;</th><td>(4 characters)</td></tr><tr><td align=right>Space delimiter</td><th>&bull;</th><td>(1 space)</td></tr><tr><td align=right>Earliest ancestor birth year</td><th>&bull;</th><td>(4 numbers yyyy)</td></tr><tr><td align=right>Ancestor interest level</td><th>&bull;</th><td>(1 character)</td></tr><tr><td align=right>Latest descendant birth year</td><th>&bull;</th><td>(4 numbers yyyy)</td></tr><tr><td align=right>Descendant interest level</td><th>&bull;</th><td>(1 character)</td></tr><tr><td align=right>Surname</td><th>&bull;</th><td>(variable length)</td></tr><tr><td align=right>\ Ancestor birth place</td><th>&bull;</th><td>(variable length)</td></tr><tr><td align=right>/Descendant birth place</td><th>&bull;</th><td>(variable length)</td></tr></table>== Release History==* Announcement Message [ 2012][]by Eric Doutreleau <[email protected]>
