I imported some recorded into my DB and did not select "preform auto enter options"
How can i now enter a UUID?
You could use Replace Field Contents and set it to Replace with a calculated result, and set the calculation to Get ( UUID ).
Another option is to dump the records you just imported, and import them again, this time with the auto enter option switched on.
You could also use a looping script with Set Field, but replace field contents is easier.
Thanks keywords - a dump and re import is the quickest for me
I have used that method myself. It's very simple and quick, as long as:
1. You realise straight away and have not done any modification of any imported records before you realised
2. You don't have a pre-existing UUID in the imported records that is already used in relationships, and so must be kept. If this situation applies you need to switch off auto-enter on that field before you do the import.
