Statistical Report Totals not correct when using a Gift query and a Constituent field

When a user runs a the statistical report in the Raiser's Edge, they may see incorrect totals for "Number of Constituents" if they use a gift query on the General tab in conjunction with a constituent field for the "Field to use" on the Field tab (ex. Constituent Code). 

We have evaluated this issue as a potential defect and we have determined it will notbe addressed in the software in its current state.  In this case, the risks and challenges outweigh the potential benefit of resolving this issue.

We wish we could address each and every issue that we come across, but there are occasions when addressing certain issues would add risk to causing a bigger problem or would put other prioritized initiatives at risk. 

We strive to select the most impactful changes and issues to address with each release to accelerate the rate at which we deliver new features while sustaining the highest level of quality for our customers.



Alternative Solution:
Use a constituent query with the constituent fields.
