Reissue receipts produces incorrect receipt number for consolidated gifts (Canada)

When reissuing consolidated gift receipts from within Mail it will produce an incorrect receipt number if the field "Gifts.Receipt Number" is available in fields to include. The field doesn't need to be used in the document just included on the fields to include tab of the mail merge.
This is resolved in 7.96, patch 12, released in July-August 2018 and applied to databases in Blackbaud Hosting Services. If your database is installed locally, download and install the latest version and patch, if applicable.

Note: this only affects consolidated receipts and not individual gift receipts

In lower versions:
  1. Remove "Gifts.Receipt Number" from the available fields on the fields to include tab
  2. Include "Gifts.Previous Receipt Number" on the fields to include tab and use this merge field in the merge document
