I have come across another merge that is hampered with a PPP. The non-PPP holds the most correct information. Can someone help? Thank you.

This is very important: it doesn't matter which profile has the most correct information.  The way to merge is into the lowest numbered profile with the correct last name at birth. So if both profiles have the same last name at birth, you merge into the one with the lowest number. You get to choose the information to keep during the merge. If there is more information on the profile with the highest number, it will automatically go into the blanks of missing info during the merge. If the highest number profile has the correct data and the lowest has incorrect, you can select the correct data to keep during the merge.

It is very important because of the problem with redirects. Google won't follow more than three or four redirects per chain.

If a profile is PPP, it could be because it has been determined to be the lowest number or the correct LNAB. It's best to check instead of just removing it to merge.  

Thanks!!

Hi, Paula! Thank you for your notes. The problem is, however, that the merge cannot be completed, because the lower-number profile is PPP. If someone could temporarily remove the PPP so that the merge can proceed, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you again on your instructions. I value your opinion.
I thought Doug did. I will take a look right now!
Yes the merge is completed! Thanks!!!!
Yes, I just saw it. Thank you for all your help. I didn't notice if the PPP had been replaced. I'll check again.
I could not visualize the PPP. It could be because of my cell phone. But if someone could make it PPP again, that would be great!
I just added it back. It needs a project. I suggest you add it to the U.K. Project.
RJ Horace did the actual merge. Wonderful! The PPP has been added. Thank you to everyone!
Isn't collaboration great?!
How do I add in the UK Project as the reason for the PPP?
Love it!
I'll add it for you. All profiles that are PPP are required to be part of a project   It makes sense. It's a project protected profile.
