I never tried this but maybe it works:
  In PCB
    - "Edit-Export to Spread" to generate a spreadsheet containing
      all components with associated layer
  In SCH
    - Via "update from database"-function and the created
      spredsheet update the part field desired
I don't remember the exact procedure to update the part fields. I gave this up a 
long time ago because it didn't work the way I hoped (I tried to get actual 
information from our central parts database into part fields of the SCH in "real 
time"). However, this could be a useful application for it.

If you try it I would be interested in the results.
