I initiated a merge of Bussing-11 and Bussing-129. I think I listed them backwards.  How do I fix this?

The merge menu should give you the option to reverse the merge (from 129 into 11 instead of 11 into 129).

When it comes time to do the merge It won't allow you to merge into the higher numbered profile providing the Last name at birth is exactly the same. It will ask you to reverse the merge before the profile can get any further in the merge process.

It doesn't matter which way the merge may have been suggested as it will be redirected to the lowest numbered profile.

The only time it does matter is when the last name at birth is different in each mergeable profile in which case you need to ensure the correct last name at birth is the destination profile no matter what number it may have.
