In The Raiser's Edge 7.92 and above:
Starting in RE 7.92, there is a Blackbaud defined algorithm which will weight and intelligently surface the best, most logical results based on the search criteria entered. The algorithm considers the following data fields: name, middle initial, suffix, address, phone number and email. This algorithm is hard-coded and is used by default within the database. The duplicate fields listed above are no longer present in version 7.92.
Note: For more information on managing duplicate records in version 7.92, see How to find and prevent duplicate records.
