Then Copy this code to Powershell :

$web = Get-SPWeb [Your sharepoint url]
$list = $web.Lists["Your List Name"]
$items = $list.Items
foreach ($item in $items) {$item["Column name you want to change"] = "Value you want";$item.Update()}

For Example, in my case, the code is

$web = Get-SPWeb http://mkts-90
$list = $web.Lists["NavServiceLogReport"]
$items = $list.Items
foreach ($item in $items) {$item["Source"] = "xyz";$item.Update()}
