Hi Shady

go to a layout that contains the field that you wish to change. Put the cursor into the field and pull down the records menu.

There you will find a replace option. Use this to replace the contents of the field with a calculation of "Y"

This will apply this calc to all the records in the found set.

As Inky Phil states, you can do this using the Menu >> Records >> Replace Field Contents (there is a script step that will do this too.

Or,

You can add a little flexibility to it by using a script such as this:

You can automate this using a script on a found set.

Go to Layout [ original layout ]

Go to Record/Request/Page [ First ]

Loop

   If [ Mark = "" ]

       Set Field [ Mark; "Y" ]

  Else

      Set Field [ Mark; "" ]

  End If

Go to Record/Request/Page [ Next; Exit after last ]

End Loop

This script will put a Y in your field if it is empty and remove it is already exist.
