merging records

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to clean up someone else's data and they have created 10 fields with 10 different values lists each value list has one option. I'm going to make it one field, one value list with 10 options.

Creating this is no big deal but I wondering how I'm going to get their data to transfer. Any suggestions on how to go about doing this?

No, several can have data. This is whats tripping me up. I could have done 10 exports/imports but that would overwrite the field value each time.

I'm thinking I need to merge then someway with a calculation before the first export.

As I was typing this I figured it out. I'll use a calculation that simple once I thought about it. c_merged = Field1 & "(return)" field2 & ....

thank for the help. just posting sometimes gets me to think in a new way that gets me the answer.
