ERROR import managed solution in another environment

I am trying to import a managed solution into the PROD environment. A managed solution already exists, so this is an upgrade. In the DEV environment I have changed the data type of a field in the solution. That is the field was first deleted and then recreated with the same name but a different data type.


Now when I import the managed solution I get an error message that the field to import does not match the existing field in data type. Now I have already integrated the changed field very deeply in views, forms and workflows, so I would hate to delete and recreate it.


Error Message:



##[error]Exception type: System.ServiceModel.FaultException`1[Microsoft.Xrm.Sdk.OrganizationServiceFault]
Message: Attribute [FIELDNAME] is a Picklist, but a Integer type was specified.Detail: 




What is the best way for me to solve this now? What options would I have to choose from?
