Would you explain a few things?

Are you talking about a SCH or PCB? If PCB, where is the 'part type' you're referring 
to? If you're talking about a SCH, it works fine, although I don't know why you would 
put all the caps on top of each other in either case.

In SCH, you would:

Click the global button, to expand the dialog box. (make sure the Attributes tab is 
selected)
Type the correct part type in the "Part Type" field under "Attributes to Match By"
Click on the "Graphical Attrs" tab.
Change the X and Y locations.
Click OK.

It will move all the parts to that specific X,Y location with the matching "Part Type"
