Having trouble getting this years directory printed. Any Stake membership clerks know the prosses. The old disc we had does not work. There use to be one button that said print directory but it was taken away with the upgrade. does anyone know my next step?:mad:

There has been no change in the directory printing capabilities of MLS that I know of. I don't know what you mean by "old disc" -- there are no discs distributed for MLS -- all MLS upgrades are downloaded automatically or manually, but haven't been sent out on a disc for many years.

There are several options for printing a directory. In MLS under Reports/Forms, you can print a Directory of Members (that has quite a bit of detail) or a Telephone and Email Directory or an Abbreviated Directory. Some people choose to take the data for those reports and format their own report (use Ctrl+Shift+C to copy the data and paste it into a spreadsheet with Ctrl+V).

I'm a stake membership clerk, but not sure how to answer you on this. Are you printing from MLS or LDS.org Directory? What directory do you need- stake leadership, stake members or both? Are you referring to an old CDOL (Church Directory of Leaders) disk?
