  • Hi,

    I'm wanting to change textboxs type in CRM 2011 form. Currently one of the field is lookup and I wanted to change it to Party List so I can have more than one inputs and the other one is single line text box and i wanted to change is to option set. "Type" is disabled when I go to customisation . is there a way edit saved fields in a form.

  • Hello,

    Unfortunately, you can not change the data type of a field once it has been created. The data type of the field used flows down to the database and I don't think there is any functionality built as such  to handle converting data types in this instance. Its advised to create a new field and export/import the data and using Excel to move the data between fields or using a on demand workflow.

    Hope it helps!
