Tanks it works perfectly
I have 2000 existing entries that I would like to modify with this function.
To script, that I just activate the record and then go to the next one, or is there an easier solution ?

Use the "Replace" function to change all the records.

First, Show All records, then click in the field you want to update. Select "Replace Field Contents…" from the Records menu and then in the "Replace…" dialog click "Specify Calculation" and enter the Auto-enter calculation. This will apply the function to all records.

A word of caution: The Replace function is fast and effective but it has NO "Undo". Make sure you have a backup of your data in case you make a mistake.
