ISSUES CORRECTED IN THIS MAINTENANCE RELEASE Here are some of the issues that have been corrected in this Maintenance
Release:

Under certain circumstances, an error could occur during the posting process in Fund Accounting. The error message would indicate that the "file already exists."

Selecting the manual paper feed as the source when printing labels failed to actually use the manual tray unless you used the "print label preview"
option then printed your labels from there.

The Bank Deposit Slip/Unposted Contributions report was printing in data entry order, so if more than one person was entering contributions, it was possible that a single check going to multiple funds could show multiple times when it should only appear once.

Defining a recurring event to end after 0 occurrences would hang the program or generate an error message indicating "function argument value, type or count is invalid."

The Consecutive Absentee report has been changed so it can now be run for a range of activities and range of consecutive absences.

The User Setup Options screen could display the settings for the wrong person if you had two users with similar user names, such as "Tammy" and "Tammy R."

An event that crosses months would appear twice when scrolling through or printing the monthly event calendar.

E-mail notifications of events was not respecting the "events occurring in the next X number of days" option and was including expired events.

A liability account with a negative balance was appearing on the Cash Management Report as an asset. The report was changed so that liabilities with negative balances are shown with 0 balances.

Under certain circumstances, including additional information on the "detail" layout of the Church Directory would generate an "invalid subscript reference" error.

A multiple day event would only show on the end date on the Events Schedule report if it was run for a date range that included the start and end date of the event.

The envelope number Locate screen under Enter Contributions now includes the address, so records can be sorted and searched by address.

Thanks guys and gals,

I recognize the fixes for some of the problems I've seen here, but am impressed at the additional functionality added in this release to the reports and other areas.

Always a great job!

Blessings,

Bank Deposit Slip, Unposted Contrib. report

Post by SaintAndrews »

From 5/25/07 Maintenance Release Notes:
The Bank Deposit Slip/Unposted Contributions report was printing in data entry order, so if more than one person was entering contributions, it was possible that a single check going to multiple funds could show multiple times when it should only appear once.
Since applying the 5/25/07 Maintenance Release, my weekly contributions entering team has noticed that this report is now sorted in Envelope Number order, rather than data entry order as it was before. They don't like it. When it was in data entry order, if there was a problem in balancing totals, they could compare this report to the paper adding machine tape, and find where the discrepancy is. Now it's nearly impossible, since the physical paper checks would need to be ordered in Envelope order which is not easy to get to. Perhaps provide an option in the report dialog on what to sort on (envelope number, data entry, check number). The check number sort option would at least be less cumbersome to validate the stack of checks against.

Since we take this report to the bank, I assume they would prefer it to be the same order as the stack of paper checks they get. It would seem to be unnecessarily cumbersome to have to sort the stack of paper checks just to match a new sort order of this report.

I've applied the 6/11/07 Maintenance Release, and the behavior is the same as 5/25/07.

Thanks!

This is a known issue and a fix is currently in progress.

We will announce it here and through e-mail when a Maintenance Release is issued that fixes this problem.
