OK, I have a database that looks something like this...Parent Company...division (sometimes hundreds)....linked contacts (usually to division) with some standard and some linked fields. Ideally, I'd like to change a field on the parent and have it replicate down thru the subsidiary divisions and into the linked contacts. Any way to do this?
I tried using a query to identify all of the divisions and then doing a Replace Field on the company lookup....this changes all of the company fields but never changes the linked contact field.

Your contacts to a company/division are linked based on the definitions in the "define fields" "link to company field" options. So you may be able to make the process of updating contcts more efficient for the company/division the are attached to by adding linked fields.
There is no such linking between companies and divisions.
