That's the rub, I have about 20 filters to search through the data and
that doesn't carry over into a CVS file. I posted a bug over a year ago.
I can export them one filter at a time, but then I have a pile of
duplicates when one member may be checked into several categories. 

I may have a Church filtered under "Religious/Spiritual" and if they
have an Ex-Con outreach program then they would also be checked under
"Outreach Program". Or: "Housing", "Family Support", or "Alcohol/Drug
Related". None of *all that work* filtering records gets exported in one
file. Seems like the categories could be boolean under their column.
Just some more comma delineated entries is all. Otherwise I just have
over 1,400 names and addresses that don't mean a hill of beans to anyone
else. I guess I could be less of a sorehead and just enter them all over
again into another app. NOT! <cracks wise>  Ric
