I want to change a field type from single line text to a multi select. There are 606 records inputted as single line text, but we need to make them multi select as we will be using that data as tags in Softr to create search capabilities. When I go to edit the field, it keeps throwing the error "An error has occurred. Please refresh this page." Refreshing the page does not help. Has anyone experienced this same issue? Please help.

Not too sure why this is happening to you I'm afraid

As a workaround perhaps you could use a script that'll create a new multiselect field with all of the options instead

Faster than a script , just copy the values into a new multi-select field. 

Oof yes, you're right, that's way simpler

Hi! I guess I should have mentioned that the field itself has several dependencies and I can't simply copy and paste.

I would look at your data to see if there is a really long answer. Maybe it is too long to be a multiple select?
