    How to enter a field value into multiple records simultaneously?

    rickcw

      Good evening,

       

      I haven't worked with FileMaker for quite some time and consequently have forgotten much of what I once knew (which wasn't a great deal, if I'm honest).  I came back recently to a file, though, and had an inkling to add an extra field to it.  The file contains about 2,000 records and I am wondering whether there is a way add the new field values in batches, as opposed to going through the file record by record.  I'm using FileMaker Pro 11.  I've skimmed through the User Guide and other potential sources of help but with no luck so far.

       

      Any ideas would be gratefully received.  Thanks in anticipation.

       

      Rick
