Changing a Existing VL field from Custom to Global List
To eliminate potential issues with mismatching lists and so on, I promoted the list from field #1 to GVL so I can use that list elsewhere.
Now for field #2, can I select the list that I just promoted from field #1?
I'm not seeing the option to do so. The only work around is to create a NEW field #2 and select the new GVL, but I'd prefer not to do that as that will mess with the records that are referencing the existing custom lists.
Is there a way to retroactively change the values list for custom list fields?

Ryan there is no way to accomplish this. There's no way to point to an existing GVL when promoting a values list to a global values list.
Creating a new values list is the only way.
Is there any other alternative way to achieve this with 6.7 version, as creating new field does not seem to be good solution as that has bigger chance to break the existing configuration as we don't have a way to find out where all the existing fields are being used in DDEs, reports, dashboard, calculations, notifications...
