I need to change one of the options in a multi-select text field.  I've changed the option in the field settings and now need to update all of the records which have that selected.  I'd like to do a search & replace on a report with all records - but when I select that option the multi-select text field isn't available in the drop down list.

Any suggestions on how to do this replace?

Currently multi-select text fields are not compatible with the Search & Replace feature in QuickBase.  A work-around for this would be to create a report that has a filter to only include the records with the specific multi-select value.  Once the report is created, you could use Grid Edit to quickly update the new values for those records.
