I've cracked it now I've found the files and what was wanted. I'd confused
the program by setting it up in a different folder from the recommended one.
Perhaps a warning should be put out to that effect. By re-installing in the
recommended folders it works.
Thanks for the suggestions.

It sounds like the Standard report folder is damaged or missing
Here is what Simon suggested to try a while ago when someone had the problem
Make sure that FH is not running. Then open Windows Explorer (under
'Accessories' in the Programs folder) and locate the following folder
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Calico Pie\Family
When you start browsing, you will probably initially fail to find the
'Application Data' folder within 'All Users'. If so, this is because
the 'Application Data' folder is flagged as 'hidden'. In that case,
click on Tools > Folder Options (within Windows Explorer), and then
choose the View tab. Locate the option for "Hidden files and folders"
and choose "Show hidden files and folders" (you can reset this later
if you wish).
If the 'Standard' folder doesn't exist, but all the rest of it does,
try just creating a folder called 'Standard' within the 'Reports'
folder (there may already be one called 'Custom' in there too). If it
does exist, try renaming it to 'Standard.bad' and then create a new
folder called 'Standard' - again, within the Reports folder. Now
start F.H. and see if that has fixed the problem.
His second suggestion was to install FH completely an re-install,
remembering to backup all your custom queries, fact sets etc first.
