Update Calculated Fields without Opening Record RRS feed

  • Question

  • There are many situations in which it would be useful to update information in a record without opening the record - age, interest calculations, days outstanding, for instance - so reports can be run accurately.  I have onload and onchange events that run the calcs on individual records, but I'd like to do this enmasse, without opening each of several thousand records.  It seems workflows won't do it.  Is there a way to accomplish this?  I guess I could imbed the calcs in a report and do it that way.  Any other thoughts?
