I want to replace the value in a field (yahoo Home) with another value for multiple contacts. The field is in the summary screen for contact types = Organization.

Not sure about "Search and Replace", but you can do the above from the "Update multiple contacts" task on the contacts returned on Advanced Search.

  • All you need to do is add your field(I think it's IM Screen name in your case) to a profile (Created from Administer -> Customize Data and Screens -> Profiles).

  • Use Search -> Advanced Search to filter and get your contacts -> Select Update multiple contacts on the Action dropdown.

  • Select your profile where you've added the field in step 1.

  • Enter the new value for the contact(You can also make use of Copy icon to copy text to all the rows) and click Update Contacts button.
