To resolve this:
- In The Raiser's Edge, go to Config and click on Business Rules.
- Under Business Rules, click on Batch options and press Change Number.
- In the new window, enter a much higher number as a starting number, such as from 1 to 1000. Click OK.
- Return to Batch and press New Gift Batch.
- If error still occurs, repeat steps 1 - 4. Increase the batch starting number, such as 1000 to 2000 or 1000 to 10000, until a number is found where the errors no longer occur.
