Filling new field with Default Value

[ Edited ]

I will be using my current database for a new company. But want to retain all the current  records identifying them with my old company.  I have created a new field, added it to the contact record, given it a pull-down menu of only the old and new company names.  Now I want to have my 900 records automatically populated with the old company name, and then I will add new contacts with the option of using old company or new company.

 

How do I populate the 900 records with the old company name, en masse.  I don't want to have to scroll through each one manually.

Thanks!
