Script question: replace field contents

I'm having trouble completing what (I think) should be a simple script, and can't figure out what's wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

I've created a database for our afterschool program where students need to log in and log out. What I'm trying to do now is create a script which "resets" all students to a logged out status (this will be used by the program administrator at the end of the day to start fresh the next day, as many of the students fail to log out properly)

The database identifies a student as logged in or out by the contents of a field called "action" (0 = logged out; 1 = logged in).

My script is:

Enter Browse mode

Go to Layout "list"

Set Field "action",0

This works one record at a time, but I need it to work on all records in the database. My guess is there's a way to do it with looping, but can't figure out how.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
