I want to add information into one of my user fields , but for multiple contacts .
Is there a way to do this all at once or do I have to do it individually.

Do a lookup first of the contacts you want to update. (maie sure you don't do this to the whole database), then you can use Edit Replace to push data into a specific field accros you lookup.
Edit and Replace, and Delete Contacts are two commands for which there is no UNDO. So make sure you understand the process before pushing GO.

What if I am only adding to the existing information? Also when Edit replace opens the two drop downs does it know that it's only to update information in the current look up?

Thanks, But he didn't answer my question.
What if I am only adding to the existing information? will this remove other information in that field. Also when Edit replace opens the two drop downs does it know that it's only to update information in the current look up?

If you use the Edit, Replace, it will overwrite whatever is currently in the field. If you want to add additional information to a field that already has info, you would have to include that info in what you are replacing. If you have the same info in a field on a number of contact records you can do a lookup of those records and when replacing, include the existing info. If each record has a different existing data before the replace you will have to do each one individually.
The edit, replace will only replace info on the records that are in the Current Lookup.
