If a user would like to change an organization name on all organization records or a select number of records, this can be done through a Global Change. This solution provides details for performing a Global Change for Organization Names in the The Raiser's Edge 7.
1. Click Administration, Global Change Records 2. Highlight Constituent, Organization 3. Click New Change 4. Select Biographical, Org Name 5. Select the appropriate operator and enter the appropriate values 6. Click OK 7. Click Change Now
Note: If changing "The" to "The\", the space after "The" is not removed. For example, changing "The" in The ABC Company to "The\", the result is The\ ABC Company (not The\ABC Company). If this is a global change that you wish to perform so that you can use the functionality of the backslash, it will need to be accomplished through Import. To do this, export the constituent ID and the organization name. Then modify the file to be The\<org name> and import the file back into The Raiser's Edge by updating existing records. For more information on importing, please see How to import in The Raiser's Edge - The Basics of Importing.
