So I recieved a great answer to this question, How to change all values in a field in one operation?, although I need some further information. I would like to change the values in the entire field to the font name that I would like it to be. When I type in the font name, it claims that it is an invalid expression. Another example of what I would like to do is change all values of another column to half, related to the vertical alignment.

  • Are you putting the text in quote marke e.g. "Times New Roman"? – Stev_k Jan 9 '13 at 15:26
  • Quotes didn't work, but apostrophes did. Thank you. – LandArch Jan 9 '13 at 15:32

You have to put the text in single quotes ' '. Double quotes " " are reserved for field names.

  • How would you approach this, though, if the text you needed to insert contained an apostrophe/single quote in the text? – mastorey Jan 28 '16 at 22:16

    I have not tested it, but doubling the quotes ('' or "") might help. – AndreJ Jan 29 '16 at 7:03
