FW: Another GEMS question

>From Gail: Original Question
I am attempting to set up the database for the special election. Rather then re-invent the wheel, I copied the general election database and recreated my one race - jurisdiction wide ballot question. I am having problems creating ballots. I get an error message that says "Could not lay out all the ballots" I only get one ballot card instead of 40. Evidently I am doing something wrong or else I need a newer version of GEMS. I am currently running on version 220.127.116.11 and Service Pack 4. Is there a newer version that I should be using and/or do I need to upgrade to Service Pack 5?

Subject: Another GEMS question
In response to our suggestion:
I have set up the database and successfully generated a ballot. I didn't like the way the headers were working, so I made some changes and checked "force layout" and then generated ballots again. It looks like it is going through the generate ballot process but then I get an error message that says "couldn't lay out all ballots." Yet under ballots, it shows a ballot 1 and when I try to view it I get an internal error GEMS message. Help?!?!
And One additional question:
Is it true with a jurisdiction wide question that only one ballot card will be created? So all 40 districts receive say "Card 1"? Is there a way to make it create 40 different cards?
