I am unable to do a global update to a userdef05 field. I have attempted to use the Global Replace on a group of 301 records and while it says it has updated those records, no change has occurred. I have run SQL update queries to change all data in contact2-> userdef05 field from one thing to another and while that seems to work - given time, all the fields revert back to original setting all on their own. And then of course, there was an attempt to use the Global Replace Wizard running against the entire database and the process monitor said it change 3063 records, but I cannot find a single one that has been updated.
What in the heck is going on and how can I get a global update to stick?
