To overcome a different problem our Area MSR department instructed us to void the original cheque, then to enter the correct details appending a letter to the cheque number i.e. "123456a". It is possible that this solution could work for the situation you find yourself in.

Examples of requests used in a stake

Here are copies of the forms that we use for stake officers. We felt it was an opportunity to remind people of the principles and guidelines of using the local unit budget allowance. We have two forms 1) for advances 2) for reimbursements

There isn't any major companies I can think of that deliver main stream content via Bit Torrent. How about 20th Century Fox MGM MTV Paramount Warner Bros. PBS PBS joins an established roster of leading content partners, including 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate, MTV Networks, MGM, Paramount and Warner ...

We had a great debate when creating the site as to if we should have browse and/or search. The problems we discovered with browse were: The maintenance of a given topic being in multiple categories. For example a printer issue could be under drivers, printers, hardware, software, etc. The alphabeti...

I agree with all that Alan posted. Forums have a place in learning and sharing experiences, but a well structured repository of good articles would be of great benefit to the many clerks serving in what I see as one of the most technically challenging callings in the church. I think that Kent's ldsc...

Sources of Data for the Quarterly Report

I have found that it can be confusing to new clerks where all the information comes from that goes into the quarterly report.

I agree. I am working on getting this changed but it may take some time to implement. If you have any specific suggestions, let me know. I believe that the stake should be able to enter the ordination at the stake in MLS. My suggestion is to make the updating of Melchizedek Priesthood Ordinations w...

Alan makes a good suggestion. In the UK we don't have the same problem. Distribution charges are automatically applied to MLS, but it would still be useful to be able to use MLS to reconcile all the Financial transactions in MLS with the monthly unit financial reports. Currently this has to be a man...
