Back in ActiveControl 7.0, utility program /n/BTI/TE_MASSUPD_FLDS was added to help customers to mass updates to custom fields on Business Task or Transport Forms. This program was useful when an ActiveControl user wanted to update many Business Tasks or Transport Forms to have the same value in a custom field, but did not help if the requirement was to update different values to the custom field on different Business Tasks or Transport Forms.
ActiveControl 8.2 introduces another utility program /BTI/TE_RU_EXCLUPD_CUSTOM_FLDS which can be used to upload a spreadsheet containing the desired new values of custom fields on a list of Business Task or Transport Forms.
i) It is possible to perform a mass update on Text Fields only at this time.
ii) File can only contain Business Task or Transport Form fields, but not both in the same upload / spreadsheet.
