Can I change column Text to Lookup

Hi,

 

When adding new column in my table, initially set as Text. Now can I change it to Lookup ? as there is a need for it and I have created new table for the lookup of that field.

 

Because when I see now if I click again the field, Data types only has 2 option : Text and Autonumber.

 

Thanks.

Hi @Axal ,

 

No it is not possible, you will need to create a different column and then remove the original, sorry.

 

Hope this helps. Please accept if answers your question or Like if helps in any way.

 

Microsoft did add the functionality to the Name field only to allow you to change from Text to Autonumber, can not do this with other columns, sorry.


Thanks,


Drew
