After the Address Book is enabled, you can use the Address Book Editor to make updates to the Address Book.
To update individual address book information, use the Address Book Revisions program (P01012).
To update many addresses simultaneously, use the Effective Address Update program (R01840) or the Global Category Code Update program (R01490).
If you do not want to update all addresses, use data selection criteria to limit the addresses. You can set up a version to update addresses to a date other than the current date.
