Bulk Update Infopath Data

I've created an infopath form that has a field on it which signifies the status of the record.  The status can be "open", "closed", or "postponed".  Users have been using the form to create records, but now I need to change about 100 records from open to postponed.  Is there a way to bulk update these records without opening each record, changing the status, then saving?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Create a data sheet view for the form library and then change the value in there.

The datasheet values are readonly when the record was created using an infopath form.  I've only been able to edit the values by opening the infopath form for each record.

Republish the template and change the settings for the field in question. Publish the field selecting the allow users to change this field check box.

That is almost it.  Is there a way to update checkboxes and datetime pickers?  They still seem to not be editable.

Unfortunately they don't work in the same way. I have a feeling you may be able to do it with checkboxes.
 
Give it a go.
