In ArcMap, I have a table of 700 land parcels, and I need to replace 76 attribute values from 700 parcels.

For example:

Parcels 1 to 76 "Fees_Owed" field = 'null' now, and I need to change them to 'Paid'.

How can I do this using Field Calculator? I tried using Object_ID <= 76.

  • If it's just the first 76 records use the select by attributes function and then do the calculations. – Keagan Allan Feb 22 '18 at 18:29

If you start with your parcels selected, Field Calculator should only apply to those particular features.

  1. Select your features.

  1. Open Field Calculator, set PAID_ to "YES".

Your selected features, but not the others, should now be updated.
