I've run into a problem where i set the maximum length of a field to short. There are 500+ nodes using this field so delete and re-write everything would be very time consuming. Is there an easy way to copy the values to another/new field with longer maximum lenght?

    Just out of interest, why are you asking how to do this rather than asking how to increase the maximum length of the existing field? – Clive Jul 19 '14 at 12:53

  • Clive: Because I thought that copying the existing field would be safer than to start messing with the database. – disallgbg Jul 19 '14 at 20:57
  • Kojo: I can't post comments to any posts but it doesn't work for me so I need to post a new thread. – disallgbg Jul 20 '14 at 8:33
