Attributes set up as Multi Value

We have an attribute that we created a while back and been using.  We are now wanting to use it as a multi value attribute. Can we add this functionality after the fact?

  • Hi Alex,

    off the top of my head, I don't think this can be done if you already have values on the field. The single attribute values are stored in a different table than MV attributes, so to do this you might need to do some scripting to convert the older attributes into an MV attribute.

    If you have a test environment, you could test by adding an attribute as single, adding a value to a few docs, then try to enable the MV flag and see if it allows you to do it and if older values are still present.

    thanks,
