PORTAL -- Replace field contents
We're adding portals to an established database.
The main database is centered around SCENES in a film.
I've added a portal to record VERSION numbers, and specific information about each version, including "artist" , "start date," "end date," and "notes."
The versions start at 101 and sequence up from there.
I want to be able to find a batch of scenes, and assign them all to one artist. When I do a REPLACE FIELD CONTENTS within the portal, it does not perform the action. (The pinwheel spins for a while, but no new data is created.) What am I doing wrong? Is it because there are no new VERSION records yet created in the version table for those scenes?
is there a simpler way around this? If I have to click on every record within the portal to make batch data entry, we'll lose hours of time for simple data entry.....
Thanks in advance!
