Completing a mass update without deleting other information

Hello,

 

I'm wondering if there is a way to edit a field without replacing the current data.  For example, my current sort all have "Client" as one contact type.  I want to add "Newsletter" to that contact type as well.  I don't want to replace the field, I want to add to it.  When all is said and done, I want the contact type to be "Client, Newsletter."  Can this be done?  Thanks!

If you go to www.designr1.com they have an addon Swiss Army knife which should do exactly what you want in regards to adding to an existing field.

Are you just trying to add whether a contact has signed up for your newsletter or not?  Why not just add a new field?  I've got a seperate field labelled newsletter which is a true false field.  I just base my newsletter lookups on that field.

 

forgive me if thats not what you had in mind specifically. Its worked just fine for me.
