Hi,

Take a simple table with 5,000 records;
Product
Supplier
Area
Price

I have a continuous form which display these 4 fields.
I will use the standard "filter" facilities to restrict which records are displayed.

My Requirement: When I click on a button how do I set the [Price] field to zero for the records that are filtered.

I guess, the key thing here is how do I process my update on ONLY the filtered records.
