change a custom entity field type RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a custom entity field as a text field, but it needs to be changed to a multiple line. Reading threads this is not possible under crm2011, however I was wondering if this would be possible;

    1. create a new entity field for multiple lines,

    2. using SQL copy data from the single line text field to the multiple line field

    3 in crm delete the single line field

    does anyone know if this is possible?

    Dont ask me .. i dont know

  • Pete,

    That is possible. If you are comfortable with SQL then you can do so otherwise the same can be achieved using Excel also (Enable data for import during export process and update data in excel).
