Last year, when removing a choice value, the existing column value remained. When the item was edited, the column value remained the same and was not required to be updated to a current choice value. This year, when an item is edited, it will not allow the prior column value to remain the same, but instead, requires the editor to select a current choice value. How can I keep the prior column value in the column? Our items definitely need to be updated for tracking purposes. Choice values need to be removed when a maximum total is met for each choice, but they need to remain in the items' column, as is, when edited.
