Mass changing field data.

We are adding a new field for the user to enter a total value.  After adding this new field we need to have some kind of mass update to the system so that an existing field's value is copied into the new total field.  Is there some way to do this in the professional version.  I surely do not want to manually modify hundreds of records.

I would use the data loader to do that.  You can simply export your object change the field name and upsert it.

 

Here is a link to info on the data loader.

Thank you for the feedback.

 

I keep asking how to change the status of a question to 'Resolve'!

Can someone tell me how to get the little 'Resolve' icon on this question stream?
