Mass Update/Import with Calculated Fields

Postby hudsonhawk » Sun Jul 01, 2018 12:57 pm

Each year I need to do mass updates to a list of accounts in my HanDBase application. Since there does not appear to be a mass update feature, this involves manually exporting and re-importing the records. When I do this all of my calculated fields resort to blank until I open and edit each record (2768 of them at present).

Is there anyway to resolve this issue? I've tried to a "Set Field Value To" on the calculated field, running a report, and of course importing the calculated values (which HanDBase will ignore. Any suggestions? Thank you! :D

I should add for clarity when i say ‘no mass update’ what i mean is to update values via import from a file. I know how to do a mass update on a single field to a single value from the list view. Thank you!
