I think until there is some sort of standard put to use (such as the use of latitude/longitude), clerks will continue to struggle with how to best assist organizations with the geographical management of ward members. I agree. However, working with raw coords (as Russell alluded to) is not the answ...

Yup, that fixed it (for me anyway). Well done! The problem I'm seeing now is when I pass the KML file to Google Earth, the pins are close, but not quite there. Most of them run down the middle of the street with a slight bias toward the correct side of the street, but unfortunately, I've found sever...

I actually do something similar in my monthly finance report to the Bishop. Using OpenOffice.org I generate financial charts showing YTD missionary fund donations, expenses, and balance, as well as Fast Offering fund donations vs expenses. It's very helpful for him to see the trends and make appropr...

You must not have seen my post where I answered your question. [post=7610]Here is a link to it[/post], even though it is just a few posts away. If I'm not confused, SR Ward Clerk and I were discussing the errors we received using the HTML/Javascript solution that calls Google Maps and your zoom mod...

Yeah, I couldn't get past the same error message. Behind the popped-up error message, it showed it was "Processing Row 1 of 443", followed by the first name on the list in parenthesis. Tried a few things, but didn't pursue it extensively. If anyone has a working solution, I would greatly a...

I had that same problem before but what we did was to add the corrected names and then merge it with the old. It worked fine. That's how we do it since then. You're making it more difficult than it is. Earlier in the thread Jeremy provided the best solution... ...Therefore, all you need to do is go...

Obviously Facebook and the like are unnecessary for the calling... True, but the fact that it CAN happen is disturbing. IMO, there should be a strict whitelist of sites these PCs are allowed to browse to. Sites like facebook are probably not as appealing to the clerking staff as they are to the you...

I guess the question is do you really need to upgrade to 8.1? I use 8.1 at home and I like the search features and overall look 'n feel better. Besides, several major security holes have been plugged with the newer versions. (Of course, if the PC isn't tied to the internet, the latter is more or le...

The problem with that is if your computer gets stolen. If you flash drive is always connected to the computer, and someone steals your computer, you have lost everything, and compromised confidential information. We keep our flash drive in a locked metal cabinet so at least there's some security. T...

There are currently no plans for MLS to run on linux. That's too bad. I would think a Java app like MLS should be portable enough to run under Linux (with a little tweaking here and there). Combined with the OpenOffice.org suite would be all most unit's would really need. The cost savings of having...
