I am working on a sharepoint server 2013. and i have added a new site column named "Custom Category" with the following 3 choices:-
- Manager Info.
- client Approval
- Order Paid.
and i have many items with their "Custom Category" site column = "Order Paid".. now i wanted to update the text for the "Order Paid" choice to be "Order Delivered". so i went to "Site Settings">>"Site Column">>"Custom Category">>change the option name from "Order Paid" to "Order Delivered". and i chose to update all the list columns.
now i went to the items which have their "Custom Category" value = "Order Paid", and inside the Display form still they got the old value "Order Paid" not the new value "Order Delivered".. and when i try to edit the item i noticed that the item will default to the first choice inside the drop-down which is "Manager Info".. so can anyone advice what is going on ? i mean how i can handle these 2 issues:-
Is it possible to force sharepoint to do the following:- if i change the choice text, to apply the new name inside all the items which have the old name??.... so all the items which have their "Custom Category" = "Order Paid" to get the updated name which is "Paid Delivered".. not sure why this is not the default behavioure..
why inside my edit form all the items which have their "Custom Category"= "Order Paid" will defualt to the first option inside the dropdown??
Can anyone advice on the above please?
