Adding custom fields to existing subscribers

The first subscriber lists I imported only had name and business set up as fields. Since then I've made use of custom fields when importing new subscriber lists, including location etc, to create more personal campaigns. I now want to use these same custom fields on my inital subscriber lists but can't figure out how without fully reimporting them again.

I'm probably missing something but how do I populate custom fields on an existing subscriber list?

You'll just want to reimport your subscribers with that new custom field in place. As long as the email address stays the same we'll just update the subscriber records rather than ignoring or creating a duplicate.

When you reimport the subscribers does it remove any of the tracking available on any particular subscribers from certain campaigns?

dtaylor - No, the reporting is tied to the email address, even if it is re-imported.
