Changing Artist/Writer/Inker, etc. Database Names

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to make across the board changes to names in the database? For example, I have run across the following errors with regard to artists:

J. Scott Cambell (should be Campbell)

Jay Anaceleto (should be Anacleto)

Lucilo Parrillo (should be Lucio)

Gabriele Dell'Otto (should be Gabriel)

There is no easy mass change that we can do (HC should be able to).

The only way to do this is to do a Find for the various misspellings and Change each one manually (then submitting the change.

Unfortunately, you would need to do multiple finds  (one for each misspelling) on the different columns (Artist, Inker, Colorist, Cover Artist, Cover Inks. Letterer, Editor).

The good news isthere are only a couple of each misspelling, usually  (at least when I have tried fixing some of these).

Just an FYI when I looked for J. Scott Campbell I found in Cover Artist

J. Scott Cambell

J. Scott Campbellel

J. Scott Campbelll

There used to be a find & replace that would correct every instance in a particular field.  Are you saying that function has been removed?  If so, WHY?
