Convert existing lookup to Lookup with Picker

Jan 24, 2011 at 1:10 AM


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.

in general yes. You can do this with PowerShell. I've attached examples to the lookup field picker 2007 download
