Mass Update Reports

Hi All,


I am working on a project to mass update all reports. I was able to get a list of reports from the Apex Data Loader but when I try to update the reports using the Apex Data Loader it doesn't give me the selection for reports. Is there a way to mass update the Name of reports? This is not a pressing project but would be appreciated if I can get a quick response.

Hi Danny,
Reports are metadata, so if you have to update reports you would have to use the metadata tools (Force.com IDE / Force.com Migration tool).
Using any of the tools you can retrieve all (or some) of your reports and then change the names. You then simply save it back on the server.

Hope this helps!
