Bulk update allows you to update multiple cells in a column to a new value.
Unlike Smart Edit which updates the cell based on its current contents, Bulk Updates replaces the existing cell value with a new value that you specify.
You can do a bulk update on text, numeric and date columns. The input will change depending on the datatype of the column.
If updating a date column you are provided with a calendar when entering the new value.
You are able to choose between selecting an existing column value or providing your own.
If the proposed Bulk Update breaks a validation rules then it will be prevented. (See Smart Edit for how this works).
You can run Bulk Update either from the Bulk Update popup or from the Bulk Update toolbar.
