In my attribute table, I have a field with empty slots. Though, I want to add Christchurch to fill all of these empty slots for this one particular column. I have thousands of rows, and wish not to manually include the name. How would I go about this on ArcMap?

I have tried using the field calculator and adding this syntax:


Though it does not work.


After looking at How To: Replace the text in multiple fields in an attribute table using the Field Calculator tool

I tried:

Replace(["City_link], " ", "Christchurch")

Then it worked.

I believe the " " is to allow for Christchurch to replace the empty cells.
