Hi,

I would like to know if anybody has run across this yet. I am using BCM 2010 and am trying to update a number of linked contacts under the same Account with a new address. Basically (50) people all working for the same company in the same location have a new address.

They all work for the same company and i would like to keep them linked. I just want to update all of their addresses at once globally instead of going through each record and entering in the same "new" address.

Can this be done through BCM? ACT! had a simple button that you clicked on titled "update all contacts within group" or something like that.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'll have to load a profile that uses BCM to see if this trick works in BCM... but in Outlook's Contacts, you can drag between groups to change some fields. Create one contact with the correct info, group by that field and drag the other items to it.

Thanks for your response Diane. I will try it but it seems like a workaround instead of a straight forward command.

I don't think its asking too much for a BCM feature/command to update everyone in a company....Thanks again.
