Updating Burial Month & Year

I like to include the burial month and year with cemetery place name information.  I imported records, shared by others, that didn't include this information.  That is to say, the place and name of the cemetery was provided without date information.

I'm working on a project with my Yoho file to extrapolate the month and year from the death information and add it to the burial information.

I'm able to find the problem records using the RootsMagic "Find" command.

I search for:
Burial date is blank and
Burial place is "not" blank.

It's a tedious process that will take quite a few days to complete.  The result will be better looking reports and improve reports of burial information.
