Deleting a constituent does not delete them from any gift batch they may be listed in. The gift will remain in the batch, but it won't be linked to any constituent. The link between that batch and the constituent record is broken.

If a batch commit is attempted, the exception message "The specified donor is not a constituent" will appear if the batch is validated or if the batch is committed.

To relink the gift in the batch to another constituent record:
  1. Click on the Constituent cell in the batch row.
  2. Click on the binoculars.
  3. Search for the desired record.
  4. Double click on the record in the results to add the batch.
