Is there a way to bulk copy/move data that is in one field into another field of the same table?

    Hi Webweaver, 

    There are a lot of options available for such an action, but not directly from the UI:

    Here is an example from one of our partners that uses an on demand workflow and XRM tooling:

    Here is another couple using Power Automate:

    If you have an on-premise environment or you do not have a Power Automate subscription, you can use SSIS with Kingways Soft connector (paid), this will make your life easier to perform operations in Dynamics 365.

    For writing a .Net Utility, you can look for Web API samples:

    If you are not comfortable with these options you might want to get a developer or power platform expert to work with you on this.
