Hello everyone, welcome to Mapinfo Tutorial. Today, I am going to show you how to update column on Mapinfo Professional table. In some cases you may need to update your existing column on a table with some values. On this example, I am going to show you how to fill a text column with some text.
We can perform simple update to a column on a table. We can also perform more complex calculation with this feature. But for now, I only show the simple update task.
See the following illustration:
Table Before update
As you can see, the column Geology now filled with “Andesite”. To do this, follow the instruction below.
Go to Table | Update Column
Select the table to update, column to update and Value. On the value, make sure to use “” (double quotes) if your column is character. Click OK to start the process.
