Bulk changing display control for value lists
We are upgrading from 5.5 to 6.3. 6.3 has broken the dropdown list display control for value list fields. If more than 14 or so items are in the dropdown list and you try to scroll by clicking the down arrow in the scroll bar, the list closes and the user is unable to select an item more than 14 items down in the list.
Therefore, we need to change all of those fields to use the Values Popup. Our problem is that we have 191 fields that use the dropdown display control and have more than 14 value list items. I realize going directly to the DB is frowned upon, but we don't have the 4 or 5 hours it would take to change each of these fields by hand.
Is it safe to update the display_control_id field in tblIVFieldDefValueList to 11 using SQL? I've tested this on a few fields and everything seems to be working, but I want to make sure there isn't some buried landmine that I'm stepping on by doing this.
