I was in a ward on 24OCT when CUBS was turned on. I saw what a mess it created, with no real instructions from SLC. I spent many hours on the phone and reading LDSTech Forum articles to understand how to "correct" CUBS issues. I had to burn some of my vaction time so I was honest with my employer. T...

I have seen several cases where someone paying expenses without reimbursement caused a lot of damage when s/he is replaced. Suddenly the program has to live within the budget, and people blame the new person for the program reductions. I have told many people it is better to know the actual expense ...

access to 17OCT MLS backup

Through the years of trolling the LDSTech Forums, I have come to respect Alan_Brown's comments. I would follow his suggestion of using MLS 3.2.3 and see what happens. If it works for you, you're home free. If you have problems, post a "return and report" status In my case, I tried MLS 3.2.3 and was ...

Gee - I feel poor. My home ward (Warner Robins 2nd Ward - unit 0159492) only had $353 million in ward missionary, but Budget showed -$18 million. I asked the Bishop what kind of Halloween (politically correct - Fall festival) party he had.

Looks like there are still issues to resolve at CHQ.

I have used a separate stand-alone system to do this. I set the system date to 1:00am on 17OCT. I installed MLS 3.2.1 (NOT 3.2.3) and restored from the 17OCT backups using the multiple units feature in System Options.

CUBS and auto-swept items - LUS reply

According to LUS, MLS submits a request to CUBS listing the swept accounts amounts. After CUBS processes the request, CUBS sends a reply back to MLS to zero out the accounts. When a transmission occurs after the CUBS reply is queued, the MLS accounts will again be back to zero. There will now be a d...
