I need to omit soft credits from some reports. Financial reports currently double the amount of some contributions when the contributions include a soft credit. For example, matching donations are entered with soft credits to the original donor, but these matching donations should not be included in the report totals.
There is a default criteria in (some of the reports) that can be checked for contributions only, or soft credits only.
But difficult to be more specific, unless you state your Civi-version, and the name of the report.
