      Description of the issue

      Looking for a better option that Replace Field Contents with current date - in databases with hundreds of thousands of records, it takes forever to update. I need a better way to have the current date notated on every record each day

               In most, not all cases, you can set up an unstored calculation field with date as the result type that uses Get ( CurrentDate ) to show today's date.
