I am just starting to attempt our end of year reports and for a start I am just getting total figures of volunteers from the reports in v-base cloud. There seems to be an inaccuracy that I have discovered. It is only small but if it is inacurate with something as simple as total vols then what else could be wrong? If I run a report on volunteers and select choose dates then an inaccuracy occurs.
Dates 01/01/2000 to 25/04/2016 = 1386 vols (total number of all vols on system) This is the same figure if you search for vols normally and get the total figure.
Dates 01/01/2000 to 31/03/2016 = 1322 vols
Dates 01/04/2016 to 25/04/2016 = 54 vols
Surely 1322 + 54 ought to add up to the total 1386 but it doesn't it's 1376 so why the difference of 10 vols. I have run this several times as I thought I was going crazy first of all. Please can someone help/shed some light on this? I need to run loads of reports and need to know they are accurate.
