LDS Tools Directory Error

I'm not sure if I'm posting to the correct forum, but I found an error in the LDS Tools Directory.
We have a member whose last name is Fisher. In the Tools Directory he is listed as last name White.
I have been unable to find a way to change this or to track down the reason for the error. In MLS his name is correct.
Thanks for any advice.

Check MLS again. There are three fields:

In the Household, there's "Household Name" which applies to the household as a whole.

On the individual record, there's "Full Name" and "Preferred Name"

In the case of non-member spouses, you have to look at the Member's record under "Current Spouse".

Thank you. I changed it and that seems to have fixed the problem.
