**Is it possible to export/edit/import the contents of a Value Map using the bulk edit tool? I have a rather large REAL value map to modify and using Excel or other external program would be a lot easier.**
From my experience.. No.
The value maps aren't really a big collection of properties that the Bulk Edit tool would handle, it's mappings are really only accessible via scripting and method calls.
Excel would be able to do it, but you'd have to use a VBA macro to achieve this.
Depending on what kind of maps you need to modify you'd do well to look in the schema starting at https://localhost/schema/CValueMap
If you need to deal with strings or bits these become a bit of a special case, but most others fit under https://localhost/schema/CTypedValueMap
a combination of the various methods from these types should get you what you want... but it won't be as easy as you'd like.
