Q. Can I performa a Bulk Update on any column?
A. Yes. Unlike Smart Edit which is restricted to numeric columns, Bulk Update can be performed on text (string), numeric and date columns.
Q. With Smart Edit you remember the last saved value but not with Bulk Update. Why not?
A. It doesnt make sense to store a previous bulk update value as by its nature its usually a one-off operation.
Q. Can I perform Bulk Update on a readonly column?
A. No, Bulk Update only applies on editable columns.
Q. Can I perform a Bulk Update across more than one column?
A. No, like Smart Edit, Bulk Update works on only one column at a time.
Q. Can I choose to enter a value that is not currently in the column?
A. Yes, you can. The selector for Bulk Update allows you to add your own value which is not currently contained in the column. Simply enter the new value you wish to set, and then click the selector to confirm.
