No matter which salutation I choose from the mailing tab, I keep getting the default salutation. Even though I select Business address, I am getting the address on Profile 1, not the alternate address. Why?
When running the User Defined Profile Export, the only field that interacts with the Mailing tab options is the "Address" field:
This Address choice includes most, if not all, the values you need to produce a mailing. To see what fields are exported, choose The alphasort name, idcode and address field as shown and select an affiliation code with a few members. Run the export and open in excel. You will find that in most cases these are the only 3 fields you need to include in your export when doing a mailing.
When you choose other salutation or address fields you are overriding the built in logic of the Mailing tab and forcing the selections to come directly from the Profile 1 or Profile 2 tabs.
