Appendix: Using "Replace" in Commentary

You can replace everything in a particular field over a batch of 
records. For example, clause editors might not want to type their 
name in the the "Recommendation by" field each time. Here is a 
solution to the problem illustrating the use of "Replace":

*Finish entering your data.
*Find the batch of records in which you want to replace a field.
*In browse mode, and put the cursor in the "Recommendation by" field.
*Under "Records", choose "Replace".
*Choose "Replace with calculated result".
*In the box, write, in quotation marks, your name. Click "OK".
*Click "Replace".
