When you include gift information in a constituent export, the Gifts Criteria screen helps you specify exactly what gifts to include. Two options on the General tab let you limit gifts by amount and order them by date.
If you leave the start and end amounts blank and you don't sort the gifts by date, Export considers all gifts - assuming they meet all other export criteria - regardless of gift amount, and exports them in date ascending order. Another underused but effective tool is the query filter, which you can use to capture the right gifts in a constituent export. For more information, review What is the query filter and how to use it when exporting in The Raiser's Edge 7 (BB82360).
