    Updating Form To Have HTML - Transfer data to new field

    Rookie

      We have a form we use for incidents that has a field we would like to update to HTML.  The current field is "Description", and it doesn't allow for me to change the String SubDataType in the Object Designer.  I have created a new field, "Description1" with the SubDataType as HTML, and would like to replace the "Description" field on the form with "Description1".  If I do this, all existing incidents with information in "Description" will appear with blank "Description1" fields.  How do I either (A) do something to the database to allow "Description" to change into HTML, or (B) transfer all existing data from "Description" into the corresponding "Description1" field for each incident?
