When I change the address for an account the addresses do not change for the contacts.
Is there a way to make this happen?

    Do the following tasks.

    1) Create a manual work flow rule with the action as "Post URL".

    2) Send Parent ContactID and the other fields which you want to update to the following page which is referenced in
    "Post URL".

     Dim service As New CrmService
     service.Credentials = System.Net.CredentialCache.DefaultCredentials

    ''''web service to be referenced
     service.Url = "http://ServerName/mscrmservices/2006/CrmService.asmx"

    '''Create the contact object.
     Dim contact As New contact

    '''Set the properties of the contact object to be updated.
     contact.address1_line1 = "34 Market St."

    '''Contactid is a key that references the ID of the contact to be updated.
     contact.contactid = New Key

    '''Contactid.Value is the GUID of the record to be changed.
     contact.contactid.Value = New Guid("BAD74492-70DB-DA11-A432-00142277FF71")

    '''Update the contact.

    4) Apply the manual workflow rule when the account is updated or can create a automated workflow for this to happen

    Yes that is an advanced way to do it but a more simple way to do it is to use the advance serarch function and get the company and all contacts listed then highlight them all and click edit.
    Change the address and what ever else you want changed that save the changes. Walla all is good.
