On your user event script you can create a search load then perform update.

Actually i want  the script to search the record  based on criteria that the filed is empty and populate it with the data from the corresponding filed fro the record.  For example I got 2 fields customer Name   and Legal name.  I want script to search all records where the legal name is empty and up date it with the customer name.


And Where do I write this script

                    type: 'customrecord_emproster',
                    columns : [search.createColumn({
                        name: 'yourcustomerrecord'
                    name: 'legalname'
                    filters : [
                            name: 'custrecord_legalname',
                            values: null
                }).run().each(function(result) {
//put your update field here
You can put this aftersubmit or beforeload. Or using a mapreduce script then put this in map.

You need to look into CSV Import of Custom Fields. The advanced settings on the CSV import lets you maps the fields.
