updating picklist values on records for certain profiles

Hi folks, 

 

I have a custom object with a field called source that has a list of 20 master values associated with it. i have created a record type for profile group A. it works just as advertised and restricts the list of values that i assigned when creating a new record. However, for records that existed prior to the creation of the the record types, the list of values in the picklist still contain all of the values from the master list. is there a way to update/assign/unassign the picklist values for the older records?

 

thanks

Hi,

 

Using the data loader / batch apex, change the record type ID of all the old records to the one you created.
