When you attach a record, you can copy across the data, but you cannot replace the value of existing fields.
For example, if you had the following data before attaching:
b. abt 1865
p. of London, England
and the birth record you are attaching to has the following:
b. 14 May 1866
p. London, Middlesex, England
You cannot apply this data to the record automatically. It's attached in the source information, but you have to MANUALLY put the updated information into the record.
You can replace data when you merge. Why can't you replace it when attaching to a record that has better information?
