It's not clear if you want to change the database itself or modify the label report.

Thanks!

 

I would like to change the data base itself.

Im looking for a way to erase all names in contact field and replace it with the words Building Manager.

 

Thi particular database is a little outdated.

I want to send a mailing and have the mailer go to the current building manager and not the trash can because that person no longer works there.

You can replase the data in a field in a lookup with Edit | Replace Field. However because the Contact field is a special field that is linked to a system First Name and Last Name field I would tend to discourage doing that. Rather I would modify the label template and replace the Contact (or First Name and Last Name) field with a text field that says Building Manager.
