Using the Datasheet View to Bulk Update SharePoint 2010 List Columns

As I was digesting my SharePoint caffeine dose for the day, I came across a question that asked if there is a way to perform bulk updates on a SharePoint list column so I figured that is easy enough to record and share.

I know this can probably be done with PowerShell, but I used the Datasheet View along with the “Fill Down” action to demonstrate how that can be done. Enjoy!
