Based on a check of the access table, bishopric counselors and the ward executive secretary can edit member contact information but not membership information. If the contact information does not include preferred name, ward clerk or membership clerk (ward assistant clerk--membership) can do it online.

It works just fine online -- if you have rights to change that data. You don't. If everything is working right, you won't be able to change it in MLS and will be redirected to LCR, so that will be a wasted trip to the office.

Ask the ward clerk to update it.
