If merging from a non-linked record into a linked record in The Raiser's Edge will maintain the link with NetCommunity within the new record.

If merging from a linked record into a non-linked record in The Raiser's Edge will break the link with NetCommunity.  To re-link this record to the NetCommunity account, you will need to do the following:
  1. Log into Blackbaud NetCommunity.
  2. Go Users & Security > Users.
  3. Select the deleted checkbox and click Filter.
  4. Open the appropriate user account by clicking the pencil icon.
  5. Click the link at the top of this page that states 'undelete and generate a sign-up transaction'.  A new signup request will appear in the Raiser's Edge plug-in.
  6. Link the signup request to the appropriate Raiser's Edge record.
  7. Process the sign-up request.
  8. If merging two linked records in The Raiser's edge the link to the record being merged into will remain.
NOTE:  A constituent record in The Raiser's Edge can only be linked to one account in Blackbaud NetCommunity. If you have duplicate constituent records in The Raiser's Edge and there is information on the "NetCommunity" tab of both of those records, when you merge two constituent records, you will be breaking the link to the NetCommunity account of the record being merged. The NetCommunity information of the record being merged will not repopulate on the final merged record.
