Subscribe on YouTube

This simple tool in QuickBase can save you lots and lots of time. If you've ever manually updated record after record to fix a typo or update something you've referenced...fear no more help is on the way.

Save time and your sanity using Seach & Replace.

  • Did you mistakenly enter a typo across multiple records? 
  • Has the name or reference to something within your QuickBase changed?
  • Do you need to make bulk edits across multiple records? 

In this short tutorial, I'll walk you through the three things you need to bulk edit groups of records in lightening speed!

  1. Select report and filter
  2. Open 'Search & Replace'
  3. Set parameters to replace

Time to say goodbye to time wasted manually fixing or updating your records in Quick Base.

Opening my Theme table, I'll first filter to the records with the word StarWars. After verifying that these are the records I want to change, I'll click on 'More' and open the 'Search & Replace in these records' option. Here you can see I'll choose the name from the field that I want to update and change StarWars to Star Wars, with the space in between. I can also select 'Match whole field only' as well as 'Match case' to get more specificity around what I'm changing...”
