Vic Goldberg
University of Colorado
Associate Director, Information Technology & Operations

Take advantage of the new capabilities in Pop Update in 9.2 starting with Pum 8. Now you can update a field (for certain records) to a dynamic value. But caution is needed - you can change values you don't intend to, even in existing queries, and it sometimes isn't as easy to set a value as you might think.
