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.

You need to enable fill in choices for the column to allow old values to stay in place during editing.
