Re: GEO codes

Using text-to-columns does not move the first five digits of the zip code into a new column, since there is no hyphen preceding it. Assuming you are using Microsoft Excel: When using Text to Columns, select the Fixed Width radio button, under the Orignal data type selection. After clicking Nex t, y...

Re: Baptism and Confirmation Record

MLS would record it - but it wasn't recorded in the backend, so it was lost when the record was transferred to a new unit. So are you saying the church has gone back to holding it in the member's record? Yes But I'm pretty sure CDE and MLS still don't transfer that information so any baptisms recor...

Re: Baptism and Confirmation Record

When I go to print the Baptism and Confirmation record for the certificate it is printing in Spanish and we are an English speaking Branch. How do I correct this? Other reports are in English. We had the same problem last week, but it was printing in Portuguese. But the problem has rectified itself...

Re: MLS / How to transfer from "other" category into "budget"

I think the only way to get money out of Other and into Budget, is to write a check from the Other account. Receive it into Budget with the next batch.

Nothing wrong with that. When you have unresponsive ward clerks, and new bishops who don't really know what to do, it can be frustrating.

Does it have to be a ward clerk, or can an assistant do it, or even a member of a bishopric?

Re: boundary realignment proposal language overlay problem

Agreed but what about the language based units that are overlayed? The instruction on the new boundary site are pretty clear that the online system can only be used for conventional units, and only domestically. Changes to overlay units still need to use the old paper form. Statistics will have to ...

Released Missionaries in Online Donations drop down list

Does anyone know the reason why some returned missionaries show in the Ward Missionary drop down list in the online donations form? We have several throughout the stake, some returned for years that are showing. I have a suspicion, but I cannot confirm it until I check each wards' MLS. I think that ...

My wife received a very strange email requesting updated address and contact info for her brother. The email originated from memberlocatorssl@ldschurch.org . Is this a valid official address for the church and if so is this some new method to track down members who have moved? Yes, this is an offic...
