Adding data to a set of records
I want to be able to add the same data to a number of records all at once selected using find. I am sure there must be away of doing this but I can't find how. Can anybody help?
Do you mean you find a set of records, and you want to set a field to 'Yes', for example, in all of the found set? Like 'Fill down' in Excel?
Then find the set, click into the field you want to fill down, select 'Records --> Replace Field contents...', set the Calculation option to be the data you want, and click 'Replace'.
WARNING: THIS CHANGE CANNOT BE UNDONE! Check carefully that you are:
- in the right field
- setting the right data
- have the correct found set
Thanks, it's easy when you know how!
