That being said, we would be more happy to let our product team know that this is a feature you would like to see added to TrackVia - we see how it would save you a lot of time! In the mean time, you can export the table, delete the field, add a new drop down field with the appropriate selections, then import to update that field. If you have any questions about this process, please let us know! Derrick 0 Please sign in to leave a comment.
