Updating multiple records

The Mass Update functions let you modify the contents of each selected record in the list of records accessed from Database Manager. You enter one or more processing statements, which Service Manager executes during adds, updates, and deletes.

Mass Update processing statements use the “$file” parameter to access fields on records in the current record list. For example, “name in $file” or “1 in action in $file”.
