Ward Clerk not a searchable calling for custom reports

Postby melvinewing » Tue Jun 28, 2011 7:26 pm

I am a stake clerk and am trying to compile a custom report of all the ward clerks and assistant clerks in MLS. The amazing thing is that when a calling of "Bishopric - Ward Clerk" is specified as a criteria, it comes back with no matches. All of the other Bishopric category callings work great including Assistant clerks, etc. When I look at the individual records of the ward clerks they all have "ward clerk" as their calling. This is completely baffling to me. Any suggestions?

I just tried it and it worked fine for me in my stake. I created a custom report which had one criterion:

Calling Position --- is --- Bishopric - Ward Clerk

When I ran that report, I got a list with exactly one ward clerk per ward.

Did you look in CDOL to make sure they all have the standard calling of Ward Clerk? Of course, that question is a long shot, since the odds are certainly against every ward making the same mistake. But I'm baffled as to why it wouldn't work for you for this specific calling. I really don't have any other ideas.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
