Adding text to field in multiple records

My first post. I saw this posted and never could find it again - how to add to a field while retaining preexisting text?

In a mail import file, upon importing, I've got a script that allows the user to name the "source" (fieldname) for the new set of records. Some records may be dupes from previous imports, and I'd like to have both (or multiple) names listed.

I usually use the replace function for multiple records, and I'm not sure in this case if I'll need to do a loop for data entry.

Simple solution, I'm sure. Any advice is welcome.

A value list will also be made out of this list for searching purposes...

Set Field [field, "new text" & field] adds new text to beginning of string

Set Field [field, field & "new text"] adds new text to end of string

Either of these can be put into a Replace command, or done inside a loop.
