Can A Field Change Be Reversed From A Tag All?

Is it possible to reverse a Tag All Field Change? 

 

Yes, it was a dumb error.

Do you have a very recent backup?

Thanks Roy.  That's what I was afraid of.

 

Fortunately, I recognized the error soon enough so that I could create a lookup and go back and fix the changed field.  ONly 400+ records. 

 

I had done enough that I didn't want to lose what I had done in the morning.

 

So, everyone, when you see the message "are you sure" stop and make sure you are sure.

Even more important, make a safety backup before you make any major change to your database. It only takes a few seconds.
