When coming from older Church Windows versions (16 & Older), Saved Selections and Custom Reports
will need to be recreated after updating Church Windows to the current version.
Beginning with version 17, it was necessary to upgrade the underlying code or “data engine” of Church Windows because Microsoft no longer supported the previously-used code. Most features and functionality in Church Windows were compatible between versions 16 & prior and versions 17 & future versions, but some items were not.
Saved Selections and Custom Reports were unable to come forward into the new version and are lost after updating. Also, anyone using Church Windows must know both their user name and password before updating. After you update, the list of user names will no longer be displayed.
Prior to updating to the current version we suggest following the processes listed below.
