Query results show phones as inactive, active, primary, or not primary inaccurately

Some users find that query results are showing the incorrect status for phone numbers and email addresses.  For example, an Email with the Inactive? checkbox marked on the Constituent/Relationship record will appear in query results as Inactive? equals No.  Or, a phone number that does not have the Primary? checkbox marked in the Constituent/Relationship record will appear in query results as Primary? equals Yes.  This happens when selecting Phones>Specific Phones on the Criteria or Output tabs in the query.
Queries will return both inactive and active contact information for phones and email addresses.  Query is used as a grouping tool to group like records (Constituents, Gifts, etc.) together.  Since there is not a 'Phone' query type, adding one-to-many fields can show Results that appear incorrect. 

To filter out the inactive entries, use the Export module for desired results.  By default, Phones are filtered to NOT include Inactive entries.
