Where do I find my "error list" and how do I copy it into a Word doc so I don't lose it?

The question above is the entire question. I've lost the way to find my error list.

Hello, Roberta!

You can find the link to your Error Report by going to your Nav Home Page or your profile page and hovering your mouse curser over your WikiID (for you, it's Berg-1880) in the dropdown menus at the upper left. The links are listed alphabetically; the error report is the 7th link down (currently).

I don't know if the error report is downloadable; but it is updated weekly (?), so you probably wouldn't need to download it anyway!

Downloadable error reports would be nice.
Thank you so much, Lindy.
YES, & Thanks for your support, Ian. One of the other answers refreshed me though, adding important info:  The error list is added into by the people doing that work. I'm finding that though I think I'm pretty careful, I miss my own errors. (Easy for me to find others' though, sigh. All too human.)

Hi Roberta.  Lindy is probably right about the need to download, but if you want to, I was able to copy the report into an OpenOffice text document by clicking on Edit/Select All, and Copy, and then Paste to the text doc.  The formatting might need a little work. but I would think that should work in MS Word as well.

Actually, every profile has an error list, showing errors on that profile and its relatives.

The one on your own profile covers your family, but it doesn't necessarily cover everybody on your Watchlist.

But you can go to any profile you're interested in and look at its error report.
