When setting up soft credit options in Query and in Reports, there are 3 options on how to distribute the soft credit amounts. One of the options in the Query module and in the Reports module are worded differently. In Query it is worded: 'Use distribution in grid'. In Reports, it is worded: 'Use distribution on gift'.
The soft credit options: 'Use distribution in grid' and 'Use distribution on gift' are the same option, but worded differently in the Query and Reports modules. Both options mean the Constituent will get credit for the amount of gift that is specified on the gift record.
