Consecutive years given only total when there is a gift within the most recent time frame (Current Calendar year or Current Fiscal year).  It shows as zero if there is no gift within the most recent time frame, regardless of the date range used.

If applicable, change the Year to use so that the Constituent has a gift in either the Current Fiscal or Current Calendar year.

Note: If using Fiscal Year, please ensure that the Constituent has actually given a gift in the Current Fiscal Year.  You can change the Fiscal Year by going to Configuration - General.

Example:
We have a Constituent that has given a gift in 2008 and 2009 (current year is 2010).  The date range includes all dates or specific dates from 1/01/2008 to 12/31/2009.  We are also using Calendar year as the Year to use.  When running the report the Consecutive Years reported is zero.  When we add a gift for 2010 (if using specific date range we must increase the date range from 1/02/2008 to 12/31/2010), the report gives us Consecutive Years of 3.
