Benefit Count Field not pulling into Mail Merge when loaded from package

When loading benefits on a gift record from a package and then doing a donor acknowledgement letter for that gift the benefit count merge field is not pulling into the letter properly. This happens in both simple and conditional merges. Entering the benefits manually on the gift record works correctly. Some of the default benefits on the package do not have a number in the count field.
  1. Make sure all default benefits on the package have a number in the count field

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Add default benefits to a package on an appeal
  2. Load the default benefits on a gift record
  3. Acknowledge the gift through a donor acknowledgement letter where Gifts > Benefit Count is included on fields to include
  4. Insert Gifts > Benefit Count in the merge document from the Add Ins tab
  5. Complete the merge and see that no benefit count is merged
