There are two ways to do this. One is you can use the Calculator tool. This is availible when you have the attribute table open. The other way is to use the attribute editor dialog. Once you have selected the features, open the attribute editor located on the editor toolbar (you will need to be in an edit session for this to work) . click on the layer name located at the top of the list of selected features. You should notice all the fields associated with that layer a listed on the right hand side but with out values. Pick on the field you wish to change for all the features and type the new value. This will change that value for all selected features.

Does anyone know how to assign a uniform attribute to a set of selected features in ArcView 9.1?  It will take forever to type in the string each time.
