This article will show you how to take the countdown for jobs and change it globally. This is useful if you have two or more jobs that you needed to edit the countdown for and wanted to avoid changing them one at a time.

Before starting, make sure you have made a complete backup and check to make sure everyone is out of CLIP.

Click the link below if you need steps on how to backup CLIP.

Left click "Files", hover over "Global Replacement", and left click on "Replace Information."

Left click to select the "Job Data Base."

Left click "Choose Field."
Move the grey slider down until you see the "JB. Count Down" field.
Left click it.

Left click "Replace With."
In the box, type the field that you want the countdown to be.
This number will be a number between 0 - 9999.
Left click "OK."

Left click "Choose Condition."
Double left click "JB.Job Number."
Double click "Equals."
Enter the job number into the step 3 box.
Hit the "enter" key on your keyboard.
Left click "Use This Condition."

Click "Perform Replacement."
Once it is finished, CLIP will show how many replacements it made at the top right of the screen.
