Updating Field value for multiple records

Hi All - i have a group / lookup, and i want to change the status/ID for every contact in the group in one go - so, the same value for all of them..(rather than editing them one by one, because there are a few hundred).

 

How would i go about doing that ?

 

Hoping some kind soul can help !

After performing a 'Create Lookup' on a Group, use the Edit > Replace Field option to update all contacts in the current contact list view.

Note: Always backup the database before making mass changes (File > Backup > Database).

What if you want to add an ID Status to a record set that may already have 1 or more assigned?

Susan,

You could use the free add-on from FreeActAddons - refer Edit Append
