Can a relational field whose value is the parent item's Display Value be mass-edited?
I need to mass-update a relational field (called 'Parent') that points to the main table, rather than another field, so that its value is the Value Display of the parent item. The field is normally populated during a subtask transition in the child item, during the child Submit, but on account of Override being checked in the child submit transition, it was not given a value for over 300 items. Is there a way of creating a transition that would use mapping or some other means to populate the field in a mass-edit, or of using an sbmscript in a regular transition action? If the script is the only way, I don't know how I'd code getting the parent itme's display value into it.

Don't worry about display value format. Just set the SR field to the parent's TS_ID. You can do it with SQL. I think you can find the parent/child info in TS_SUBTASKS or TS_ATTACHMENTS table.
