Replace all text within a field

Post by MSIAC » Thu Dec 08, 2005 12:26 am

Hello all,

I have a number of databases which are currently being migrated to another system but require a bit of reworking before the move.

I cannot seem to figure out how to replace the text that falls between the field names with "Citation". The text that follows the field name is always different.

.DOC_TYPE. (field name)
Technical Report (data)
.SUPP_NOTES. (field name)

Thank you

Michael Longie
