URGENT: programmatically change FiledAgainst/Project Area

I have a BUNCH of work items that I need to MOVE from one project area to another.  I thought I could do it using bulk operations (change Filed Against) but when I select the different Project Area, it seems to only allow me to do one at a time.

I have about 8,000 of these things to "move" ... I need HELP!

Has anyone done this via Eclipse Client?  Or does anyone have a bit of code that they can share that can do it?  I know that I will have to do some mapping of attributes but if I had something to start with, I think I could handle the rest.

Thanks in advance!
Susan

Hi Susan,

Hi Susan, you can find the client code for this in the SDK:

com.ibm.team.workitem.rcp.ui.internal.wizards.CopyToProjectAreaWizard

That should allow you to find the active code to call.
