How change Content Type for Multiple Items

In Sharepoint 2010, unlike MOSS 2007 we are unable to edit content types in data sheet view.

I had the content types in a field called ContentType_data which is a regular Text Field & used a WorkFlow to change the Content Type.

When i created the workflow I first started it manually on 1 item to verify that it works.

I set the Start Options as :

Then I created a very simple workflow as show below.

The trick here is when you add a step to update the contenttyepID it will not appear, you will first need to add some other field and then change it to this.


Hope this helps….Any queries please leave a comment & I’ll get back to you.
