Ensure that you select a receivable gift type such as Cash, Stock/Property, Gift-in-kind; do not select the gift type of Pledge or Recurring Gift.
Manually apply the gifts to the pledges or recurring gifts
- Create a new gift query
- Filter on Batch Number equals (appropriate batch number)
- Save and close the query
- Globally delete the gifts
- Open the batch, mark the batch as recurring and re-link the gifts to the appropriate pledge or recurring gift
- Recommit the batch
To prevent this from happening in the future, ensure that the gifts are manually linked or set to automatically apply to the pledge or recurring gifts.
