update acquisition date

Hi, I need to update the acquisition program and acquisition date fields for a number of leads as I only realised late that they didn't fill in automatically. The form was embedded in a different web page. The acquisition program field is easy to update, but how can I update the acquisition date accurately? I can update it with the created date but don't think that's possible?

The system will figure it out when you update Acquisition Program.

But you can also use Change Data Value > Acquisition Date

My philosophy to this sort of thing is that ANYTHING is possible here until you don't see it in the picklist of fields or cannot figure out a way to make it work using other fields. Just give it a try

Re: update acquisition date

My problem is that I want to update the acquisition date field with the date that the lead was created on and the dates vary widely. I don't want to manually go in and check the date they got created and the update them. I can't seem to see an option to change the value of Acquistion Date = Created date. Or am I missing something?

Couldn't you do it in Salesforce through Dataloader? Export all records with ID, created date. Then import the created date into the acquisition date field?
