Replace Field Command-Menu Item
Under what conditions, other than clicking in the field box which you want changed, is this Menu Item greyed out? I want to update serial numbers but the command is greyed out.
Yes, this option will not be available (will be greyed out) if you have not put the focus on the field you want to update with this option.
It will also be greyed out if a script is currently paused.
Thanks for your reply. I do the focus part. The solution is so simple that there are no scripts and yet it is still greyed out.
And is the field in which you have the focus a field that does not permit modification? This would happen with a calculation field and also with a field that has the "prohibit modification" option set and this last option is common for serial number fields that are intended for use as primary keys. You may have to turn off that option long enough to do the replace field contents option and then turn it back on.
Yes, the Solution is a serial number field and your recommendation to turn off that restriction worked. Thank you much.
