Convert existing lookup to Lookup with Picker

Jan 24, 2011 at 1:10 AM

Hi,

is there any way to convert an existing SharePoint lookup column into a Lookup with Picker? I have got a list with thousands of entries and don't want to lose all of the data that currently exists in those items when I introduce the Lookup with Picker column.

Thanks for the info.

Hello,

in general yes. You can do this with PowerShell. I've attached examples to the lookup field picker 2007 download http://ilovesharepoint.codeplex.com/releases/view/15633

Bye, Christian
