Bulk Edit Name Pefix Field

I have a client who would like to remove the personal name prefix from the contact name. I have created a new field and copied all name prefix into the new field but it looks like there is no way of bulk editing the name prefix field as it is a system field linked to the contact field.


Appart from exporting with a UID and re-importing does anyone know a way of doing this as there a a few thousand records involved?

Re: Bulk Edit Name Pefix Field

You will need to export|edit|import or you will need to use an addon.  There isn't any way to do it inside the product.  I sell an addon that might do what you need to do.  Send me a private email if you're interested.
