Edit several records simultaneously in Business Contact Manager

You can simultaneously edit the contents of a field in more than one record. This bulk editing is useful when you want to change information in several records. For example, if several of your Business Contacts move to a new location, you can update the address in each of the records all at once.

The options for the fields that you edit vary based on the type of records that you select.

You can edit the contents of any field, including any fields that you have added, in the selected records on a tab.

  1. In the Navigation Pane, under Business Contact Manager, click one of the following folders to display the workspace:

    • Contact Management.

    • Sales.

    • Marketing.

    • Project Management.

  2. Click the tab that contains the records that you want to update.

  3. Click the records that you want to edit.

    How do I select more than one record?

    To select records that are adjacent to each other, press the SHIFT key, and then click the first and last records of the group that you want to add. To select nonadjacent records, press the CTRL key, and then click the individual records. To select all records, click one, and then press CTRL+A.

  4. On the Ribbon, on the Home tab, in the Edit group, click Bulk Edit.

  5. Click the field that you want to edit.

  6. Click the options that you want, and then enter the information that you want to add to the records, or click Clear the value to delete the entry in the records.
