Why can't I create a custom report? I have entered all of the criteria and formatting and save and it creates the report but never pulls any dat from the database. Just blank.

The only way we can help is if you describe the report criteria that you set up.

check your criteria...

Yes, describe what you need and how you are doing it so somebody here can try to recreate it for you. It sounds like something is not correct... your report is "blank" because no data is meeting your criteria. As an obvious example: You could create a report to display all WOMEN who hold the priesthood. This would return a "blank" report (not an error message.) There is no data meeting your criteria to display, and the output would look just like you describe.

Try simplifying your report to a single criteria, and thus figuring out which criteria is incorrect.

and read the wiki: custom reports
