Hi, and thanks for a much needed feature

Just a quick question. Is this functionality available for external lists also?

Good Question!


External List support is not available right now.  This is because External Lists uses a special BCS Content Type.  That's why SPListItem has no uniqueId, what Batch Edit is using to update items in a list.  But I am sure it's possible with some small adaptations.

So this feature is now on our To Do list for the next release.  Thanks!
