For the current lookup. Create your lookup first.

Re: Blank fields with replacement

If I select in the list view all the contact that dont have phone number, I click on the option EDIT MODE and I go to the menu remplace field, do they will replace ALL customer phone number or just the customer I selected in the list view with edit mode ?

As Giles has stated as long as you do the lookup of Does Not Contain Data first then you will only be in a lookup of those without phone numbers.

 

You can now do your Edit Replace and it will only change the records in your lookup, you even get a confirmation of this is what it is going do in the Edit Replace wizard as you proceed.

ACT is designed so that edit replace will always look at the list view so it is up to the user to do a lookup first so that the correct records are in that list.
