Using the Attribute Dictionary, I understand that I can update the values for common attributes....like, if I have a field called ENAME, and it appears on several forms (P1_ENAME, P4_ENAME), I can set the default data in the Attribute Dictionary, then go to each page individually and apply the values in the Attribute Dictionary.

My question is, is there any way to apply these values to multiple pages at one time? So, for instance, if the ENAME field is used on 1000 forms or reports, can I negate having to do the update 1000 times?

Thanks.

The only resolution that I have seen on this, is what I had initially thought of, is to write a sql script to modify the apex system tables directly.

I cannot do this because of two things:
one:I am no longer in the dba team, so haven't the permission to do this
two: it just isn't a good idea

So, I guess we'll just go with updating page by page and be thankful that it isn't item by item.
