I want to move all the data in a particular field across to a new field, on every record in the file...how can i do this? is it possible? ...i would have thought i could do this with the 'batch' feature, but cant work it out...
If BatchEdit is allowed:
Or, to avoid the risk of messing up your database (since you say that the target field is a new, hence empty field):
Edit Menu - Edit Record
Now if everything worked well - you have the two fields with identical content
Check that everything is correct in the new field
Personally, when I need to do something like this - in order to make itr easyer to follow and verify - I quickly create a temporary list format containing the two fields (Cardbox makes this very easy)
Iuliana, a couple of corrections:
1. The command to start a batch edit is not Edit > Edit Record but Edit > Batch > Edit. For more confident users, there is a shortcut: Ctrl+B.
2. Shift+End highlights only the first line of a field. To highlight the whole field, use Ctrl+Shift+End, or Bert's Ctrl+A.
MAGIC.... THANKS GUYS....
