If I understood your question, I think this may be what you want:


1.  Lookup company name in contact view.

2.  Highlight the ones that need to have a field changed using the Windows command Ctrl Enter

3.  Select "Lookup Selected"

4.  Then use the Edit command to "Replace Field" and enter the information as needed.

Hi jnpurdy,


Thank you for your reply.  Unfortunately, I'm not sure I explained the issue/need clearly.


I have a 'Contact Status' field in Companies that is linked to a 'Contact Status' field in Contacts.  In one instance, I would like to mass-edit all Contacts by modifying the 'Contact Status' field with the value of the linked field in the corresponding Company.


I have almost 2,000 Companies in my ACT database, so it would be far too time-consuming to do this one-company-at-a-time.


Hope this helps clarify.  Please let me know if you can help.

Well, I tried to figure out a way, but in all cases "Update Linked Contacts" is always grayed out.


If there is a solution, I'm thinking it would have to be a 3rd party or maybe one of the SQL ACCs can help you with a solution.


Good luck, Ken.

Thanks for your help, John.


There was previously a 3rd party addon to do exactly this, but I don't believe it's available for the v22.  Hoping ACT reads these posts and considers adding this feature to the product.  Would be enormously beneficial.


Thanks again,
