The Address Labels report and the Address List report both concatenate an Address from the Residence to the stand alone Address.
e.g. Name is Joe Citizen, Residence Address is MYCITY NSW, Address IS OTHERCITY NSW

Address label will show:
Joe Citizen
OTHERCITY NSWMYCITY NSW

    I think it's wrong to use address information from the RESI record.

    RESI is intended to provide a history of where a person lived. There can be many RESI records, so using these will produce useless address reports or labels.

    ADDR records should always give the current contact information, and can be used to produce address reports or labels, PROVIDED you have been diligent in ensuring that there's only one of these for each individual.

    You are right Gerry.

    I can't see any option to exclude RESI records from the address labels. This probably requires a code change.
