Total Gift Amount export field does not include Write offs when a campaign or fund query is included

In a Constituent Export when a Total Gift Amount field includes a selected campaign or fund query, the field does not consider write offs.  

If Use gift balance instead of gift amount is unmarked:
Use Selected Campaigns or Selected Funds, rather than a Campaign/Fund query.

When Use gift balance instead of gift amount is marked:
Use a Campaign Query, rather than selected campaigns.
