How do I do a global edit, with conditions, on my data?

Just onverted 'Massachusetts,USA' to 'Massachusetts Bay Colony' 1630-1691 ...I have lots more such edits and I'm not excited about doing them one at a time ...

I agree with Bob. There are a number of fields where this can be exceptionally useful. As an example, today I realised I made a spelling mistake in a place of birth and death - should have been Colesberg and NOT Colesburg. If we can't do global changes on the profiles that we manage, then at least we should have advanced search and retrieve options to get a list of the profiles we need to edit.

Hi Bob,

I'm afraid one-at-a-time is the only way to do it.
